Huddersfield Town v Nottingham Forest: Confirmed XIs; Ward starts, Samba amongst 4 changes



Huddersfield Town host Nottingham Forest at the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon, looking to continue a fine run of results. 

Carlos Corberan’s side have won four of their last five fixtures and are in contrasting form to the visitors.

Six defeats in seven has cost Chris Hughton his job at Forest, with Steven Reid in temporary charge today.

Here, we bring you the confirmed team news ahead of kick-off:

Huddersfield Town

After an impressive win over Blackpool in the week, Huddersfield are unchanged this afternoon.

That means Danny Ward keeps his place in attack, despite Fraizer Campbell returning to the squad and featuring on the bench.

There’s no room in the matchday squad for Rolando Aarons, meanwhile.

Reid has opted to make four changes from the Forest side that lost to Middlesbrough in midweek.

Brice Samba comes back into the side in goal, whilst Djed Spence and Tobias Figueiredo are drafted in as Forest switch to a wing-back system.

The final change sees Joe Lolley – a former Huddersfield player – come into the attacking unit.

Forest XI: Samba; Figueiredo, Worrall, McKenna; Spence, Yates, Garner, Lowe; Lolley, Grabban, Johnson.
