Huddersfield Town vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Nottingham Forest will travel to West Yorkshire without a head coach and that could only mean more disappointment for them. They have lost six of their seven games this season and their poor run of form makes the home side the favorites here.

Huddersfield have four wins in their last five league games and a win is on the cards for them here, while the odds of a clean sheet are also good.

Prediction: Huddersfield Town 2-0 Nottingham Forest.
