Huddersfield Town Preview – Can the Terriers cause one more upset?

Huddersfield Town had a pretty miserable 2020-21 season. They finished in 20th place with a mere 49 points to their name. However, the Terriers have improved tenfold this term, with Town taking third place. After 46 matches, Huddersfield won 23, drew 11 and lost 12.

Carlos Corberan’s men are undefeated in nine games, winning seven and drawing two. They finished the regular season with four straight wins. They were paired up against Luton Town in the play-off semi-finals, drawing 1-1 at Kenilworth Road before beating the Hatters 1-0 at the John Smith Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest to score first

(odds taken 1403 GMT, Saturday 28 May)

Huddersfield may be the underdogs, but they finished above Nottingham Forest in the regular season, and the Yorkshire club will back themselves to secure another promotion to the Premier League.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Will the Reds be too strong for Town?

Nottingham Forest made a dreadful start to their 2021-22 season under Chris Hughton, who was sacked and replaced by Steve Cooper in September. When the ex-Swansea City manager arrived at the City Ground, the Reds were bottom. However, they went on a remarkable run to finish in the play-offs.

Forest narrowly missed out on automatic promotion, but they dusted themselves to see off Sheffield United in a tight two-legged play-off semi. They won 2-1 at Bramall Lane in leg one but lost by the same scoreline at the City Ground in the second leg. Brice Samba was the hero in the shootout as Forest won 3-2 on penalties.

The pair also squared off in the FA Cup in March. Tom Lees gave Town an early lead, but Forest turned things around thanks to goals from Sam Surridge and Ryan Yates.


Key Facts – Huddersfield Town vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Huddersfield have won seven and drawn two of their last nine
  • Forest have won just one of their last four in 90 minutes
