Huddersfield Town face a daunting proposition this weekend, with in-form Nottingham Forest the hosts.

Unbeaten in 13 games, that run has sparked talk of a promotion push for Dougie Freedman's side. They boast a formidable defensive record , but Town have scored in every game since last November - the Championship's longest run.

Does something have to give today?

In a game full of sub-plots, loanee Jamie Paterson will have to sit on the sidelines as he is ineligible to face his former club. Karim Matmour and Elvis Manu are doubtful with a knock and illness respectively , which could leave Town short up top.

In the absence of Emyr Huws, Philip Billing stepped up against Preston North End and will hope for another start today.

It could be a tough afternoon for Town, but victories at the City Ground have tended to come in pairs - and Sean Scannell scored the only goal of the game last time Town travelled to Nottingham in April 2015.

Super Town fans

The fans certainly did their bit today. Now “Philip Billing he’s one of our own” and “David Wagner he’s better than Klopp” echo around the City Ground - nearly empty except for one delighted corner.

Massive cheer as David Wagner gives the away end a fist pump or three.

13 games unbeaten...

And then they met Town. David Wagner’s side far superior to the hosts and end their hugely impressive league run. Meanwhile, Town’s own run of scoring in every game since November goes on.

FT Nottingham Forest 0-2 Huddersfield Town

That’s it! A fantastic win from Town, who have been excellent and might have won by more. Wonderful display capped by Billing’s superb strike.

A good day to be a Town fan!

Third sub from Wagner

92. Jonathan Hogg will see these last few minutes from the bench - Martin Cranie is on in his place.

Second Town sub

Five minutes added

90. FIVE stoppage time minutes for Town to finish the job.

Town change

87. First change from David Wagner and he lifts Billing on to his shoulders in sheer delight as the Danish midfielder comes off for Dean Whitehead.

Wow

What a way to score your first professional goal - De Vries no chance with that long range beauty. One to watch again on loop to be honest. He’s been excellent again young Billing and he deserves that. The away dugout and away supporters go mad. That goal should steady some nerves as Forest had been looking good before that,

GOAL TOWN!!

83. That is a STUNNING goal from Philip Billing, firing into the top corner with his left foot from 30 yards!!

Forest 0-2 Town

Mills booked

81. Forest skipper Matt Mills is booked for bringing down Wells as he advanced on goal.

Final Forest sub

80. Last change for Forest - Robert Tesche comes off to be replaced by Dexter Blackstock.

No changes for Town as yet....

Good take Steer

77. Home fans incensed as they claim a penalty for a third time this afternoon - again shouting hand ball, again nothing doing. The cross comes in from the left at the second attempt and Steer does well to gather in the air cleanly.

Billing off target

75. Phil Billing picks up a loose ball and lets fly from 25 yards but it curls some way off target.

Chance for Forest

74. Looks like we’re in a for a tense last 15 minutes! Joe Lolley is forced to head away a dangerous inswinging free kick after Bunn fouled Vaughan.

Smith booked

73. Er...yellow cards behaving like buses there. A third in quick succession, Tommy Smith now for taking his tie over a throw in.

Hogg booked

72. And there’s another! Jonathan Hogg goes in late on Grant and is booked.

Grant booked

68. First booking so far today as Jorge Grant has his name taken for a challenge on James Husband.

Attendance

1,193 Town fans are here today in a total crowd of 19,984. They’re the happier ones at the moment.,..

Forest on the up

65. Few worried Town fans now as Forest enjoy their spell of the game. A couple of decent efforts from Oliveira are the result but no breakthrough yet for the hosts.

How key could Jed Steer’s save end up being?

Forest penalty shout

62. The home side want a penalty for handball from the resulting corner but the referee is not at all interested in that one.

What a save Steer!

61. Great stop from Town’s on-loan keeper to deny Oliveira from 20 yards and push the ball behind.

Would you make a change now?

Around half an hour plus stoppages to go...

Smith shoots

58. Karim Matmour switches play to the arriving Tommy Smith on the right side but his effort is too close to the keeper.

Double Forest change

56. Not much going on at the moment and it is Freedman who makes the first change.

Jamie Ward is replaced by Oliver Burke while Jorge Grant is also on in place of Gary Gardner.

Town free kick

51. Hary Bunn taken down right on the edge of the area but it’s so close in it’s a tricky one to get the ball up and over the substantial wall. Joel Lynch goes for power and wins a corner off said wall, but it’s cleared.

Forest out of the traps

49. The home side making some early running this half but Town equal to it so far. The energy in winning the ball back in midfield is very noticeable, and the comparative lack of it from Forest is irking some of the home supporters.

Second half under way

46. Away we go again with Town a goal to the good.

Town deserving leaders

Town have been excellent in the first half, Forest haven’t been able to cope with the gegenpressing and swift passing. Lots of chances created, one scored (by the Forest defender no less).

The hosts have been poor so far. Struggled to create much and when they have had opportunities they haven’t made the most of them.

However, they are a very good side chasing the play-offs. What does the second half bring?
