Nottingham – Huddersfield Match Preview

  • There was no Boxing Day feast for Nottingham Forest as they were left feeding on scraps in a 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough. That was just the playoff chasing side’s second defeat under boss Steve Cooper (W8, D6), but they may struggle again here versus Huddersfield Town, a side Cooper has failed to beat in three of his four previous personal clashes (W1, D1, L2).
  • The ‘Tricky Trees’ will be happy to finish the year at the City Ground though as only high-flying Fulham have got the better of them here under the current regime. Encouragingly, Forest are unbeaten across their last five home league games (W3, D2) whilst another victory would secure a run of three straight home league wins for the first time in almost two years.
  • Carlos Corberán’s Huddersfield moved into the playoff picture with a dramatic 3-2 victory from behind last time out, their second such victory in succession. Those wins have contributed to the Terriers’ current four-game unbeaten run (W2, D2), a streak they’ll hope to extend here as they seek to secure three consecutive year-ending victories for the first time since 1982-84!
  • A return of three wins ‘to nil’ across Huddersfield’s last five away H2Hs provides further encouragement, though a mere 25% away win-rate in the league this term may dampen spirits. Casting further doubt upon grabbing a positive result in this clash is Huddersfield’s inconsistency away from home, as whilst they won on their last trip they haven’t recorded back-to-back away league victories since 2016/17!
  • Players to watch: Full-back Djed Spence returns after being ineligible to play against his parent club last time out. Forest have a 88% league unbeaten-rate with him in the squad but a 0% win-rate without. For Huddersfield, Sorba Thomas tripled his Championship goal tally with a game-winning double last time out – only two players have provided more than his eight assists this Championship campaign.
  • Hot stat: Forest have avoided defeat in 60% of their league games when trailing at half-time (W3, D3, L4).
