Huddersfield Town wins at Nottingham Forest have tended to come in twos.

There were victories in successive visits to the City Ground in the twenties, the seventies and when the nineties became the noughties.

Sean Scannell’s goal shortly before half-time earned Town a win at Forest last season.

So can they carry on the trend and snap a four-match losing sequence?

It won’t be easy, because Forest haven’t lost in 13 Championship games.

And the last time Dougie Freedman’s side came a cropper in a league game on their own turf was against Hull City in early October.

Forest are 10th, seven places and 10 points above Town, and there’s talk of a play-off push.

Wideman Scannell is ruled out by his knee injury as Town chase a first win in five Championship matches.

Midfielder Emyr Huws will miss out because of his damaged ankle.

And on-loan Forest forward Jamie Paterson is ineligible against his parent club.

But Town do have skipper and centre-back Mark Hudson available after a two-match ban.

And hopefully both David Wagner’s January window arrivals, Karim Matmour and on-loan Brighton and Hove Albion winger Elvis Manu, will prove their fitness.

The head coach’s team selection will be as interesting as ever.

Will Hudson come straight back in as Town try to shore up their defence after those two late concessions at Preston North End?

Will Philip Billing be retained as one of the two anchor midfielders after his impressive display at Deepdale?

And how will Wagner adjust to the absence of Paterson, who has been an important player under his stewardship?

While Forest are looking upwards, Town still aren’t worry-free when it comes to a possible relegation battle.

They are five places and seven points above the drop zone, so there can be no underestimating the value of a victory to the John Smith’s Stadium club.
