HUDDERSFIELD VS NOTTINGHAM FOREST: PREDICTIONS
Summer appointment Carlos Corberan is still searching for his first point as manager of Huddersfield Town but he faces a Nottingham Forest side in a similar predicament on Friday.
The former Leeds U23 head coach replaced Danny Cowley as manager of the Terriers in July but has thus far overseen back-to-back defeats to Norwich City and Brentford without scoring, adding greater emphasis to pick up points when Nottingham Forest roll into town later this week.
For Sabri Lamouchi, the despair of that dramatic final day of the 2019/20 Championship season, in which Swansea pipped them to the play-off post in unlikely fashion, has frustratingly lingered over to the new campaign, with the Reds also suffering two opening defeats without finding the back of the net.
Misfiring and out of form, surely goalscoring droughts will come to an end at the John Smith’s Stadium and one of these sides can get their season up and running. But, who will be bringing home the proverbial bacon?

HUDDERSFIELD VS NOTTINGHAM FOREST: TEAM STATS
Goals have been hard to come by this season for both these clubs. Huddersfield are still trying to establish themselves under a new coach and are certainly feeling the effects of Karlan Grant’s recent absence, who will again be left out of contention this Friday as confirmed by Corberan, amid transfer interest from West Brom.
Lewis Grabban was instrumental last season as Forest came agonisingly close to sealing a sixth-place finish, scoring 20 Championship goals, and the Croydon-born centre-forward will be aiming to open up his account for this campaign against the Terriers, whom he netted two goals against last term.
21 December 2019 — Huddersfield 2-1 Nottingham Forest
08 April 2017 — Nottingham Forest 2-0 Huddersfield
26 December 2016 — Huddersfield 2-1 Nottingham Forest
13 February 2016 — Nottingham Forest 0-2 Huddersfield Town
The last two seasons have been reminiscent of a table tennis match, with a home win followed up by a defeat for each of these clubs, and so on. That seesawing action included a 3-1 win for Forest last time out, which saw four goals, a red card, a 97th-minute penalty and a Grabban brace unfold.
