Nottingham Forest v Huddersfield: What’s the story?

The stakes really couldn’t be any higher for Forest tonight as they take on the Championship’s form team.

Whoever claims the victory tonight will set up a quarter-final contest against Liverpool on home soil and the Reds will be desperate to progress.

My Europa League Predictions.

Forest have been brilliant in the FA Cup so far during 2021/22. Arsenal and Leicester have been despatched so far and now the Reds face another tough test.

Cooper’s men claimed an important draw at Sheffield United on Friday night.

Ryan Yates flicked a header into the corner of the net in the fifth minute of stoppage time to give Forest a deserved share of the spoils.

Huddersfield enjoyed a weekend to remember.

Their win over Peterborough saw them go second with Bournemouth losing the day after against Preston North End.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see how Carlos Corberan sets up tonight now they’re in the mix for automatic promotion.

The two sides have played each other twice this season.

Forest claimed their first win of the campaign at Huddersfield in September, winning 2-0.

The Terriers won the reverse fixture 1-0 despite Forest producing a dominant performance.

Broadcast details

Forest’s game will be on ITV4 tonight, live and exclusive.
