Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield Town Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game will have implications at both ends of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Huddersfield have dominated the recent encounters between the sides winning four of their last five with the other game ending in a draw. The reverse fixture on Boxing Day in Huddersfield was won by the home team. They got their goals that day through Kasey Palmer and a Michael Mancienne own goal while Hildeberto Pereira netted the only goal for Forest. It is now five without a win for Forest who went down 1-0 to Wolves on Tuesday evening in a game low on chances created and quality. Huddersfield got their season back on track with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Norwich. The goals were spread around the team with one each for Elias Kachunga, Aaron Mooy and Nahki Wells.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With a wealth of attacking talent in both sides I think goals looks to be the order of the day here. This would have paid in five of the last seven Huddersfield away games and each of their last five home games. Zach Clough has got four in the last three games at the City Ground and he looks worth a play here in the goalscorer markets against a side who have kept a clean sheet in just one of their last six away games.

Over 2.5 goals in this game

Forest Preview

Just two points from their last five games and one win in the last ten has placed Forest deep into the relegation mix. They currently sit in 20th place just two points and two places above the bottom three. It is two home games without a win for Forest though on a larger scale it is just two defeats from their last seven at the City Ground. Brighton and Newcastle are among the teams to have come away empty handed from here this season. The last five Nottingham Forest home matches have gone over 2.5 goals which is in contrast to their away results where none of the last four have. Zach Clough has found the net four times in the last three home ties. Four of their last five at home have seen a goal in the first 30 minutes.

Huddersfield Preview

Victory in midweek put to an end a run of back-to-back defeats for Huddersfield and was their third in the last five. Third place looks like the best the Terriers can hope for now as they are now nine behind Brighton though they do have a game in hand. The Yorkshire side are one of the better away teams in the division and have lost just one of their last five on the road with this defeat coming in a flat performance at Bristol City. They have though registered wins Brentford, Norwich and QPR in recent months. Three of their last four and five of their last seven have gone under 2.5 goals. Each of their last five has seen one or more teams fail to find the back of the net. Five of their last six goals have come in the second-half of matches.
