Tom Marshall-Bailey brings you all the latest updates from the Terriers' second-round Capital One Cup meeting with early Championship table-toppers Nottingham Forest at the John Smith's Stadium.
Good evening and welcome to LIVE coverage of Huddersfield Town v Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup second round.
My name is Tom Marshall-Bailey and I will be bringing you all the latest developments from the John Smith's Stadium.
Let's start with some of our pre-match content, starting with everything you need to know about this evening's game.
We will quickly interject to bring you all the team news for this evening, starting with Huddersfield Town, who make three changes to the team that drew 1-1 with Charlton Athletic on Saturday.
Apologies, Town have made four changes this evening. And they are as follows: Adam Hammill, Danny Ward and Jonathan Stead are in for Sean Scannell, Lee Peltier and Nahki Wells respectively.
Joel Lynch starts despite an ankle complaint and is joined by Murray Wallace after his red card was rescinded, while there is a place on the bench for James Vaughan after his return to first-team action on Saturday, but injury doubts Wells and Peltier are not risked and miss out altogether.
Forest, meanwhile, are virtually unrecognisable from the team that beat Reading 4-0 at the weekend, with seven alterations.
Indeed, only Karl Darlow, former Town right-back Jack Hunt, Michael Mancienne and Michail Antonio - two-goal hero in the win over the Royals - retain their place and Eric Lichaj, Jamaal Lascelles, Robert Tesche, Ben Osborn, Henri Lansbury, Jamie Paterson and Lars Veldwijk come in.
Here's some more of our pre-match content, with a quotes piece with Joel Lynch on his eagerness ahead of tonight's game with one of his former employers.
And here's Nahki Wells on his love affair with the Capital One Cup.
Have a glance back at some previous meetings (all two of them) between the two sides in this competition here!
All ever so slightly meaningless with Matt Fryatt only on the substitutes' bench, but here's something on the former Hull City striker looking to repeat his trick of downing Town in the League Cup.
What do you think Town fans?

Lynch was seen having a joke with Forest goalkeeper Karl Darlow on his way out but, more importantly, Dean Hoyle is in attendance this evening.
The two teams are read out by stadium announcer Paul Ramsden and we are closing in on kick-off here!
We are underway here as Nottingham Forest in their customary red kit get the ball rolling.
GOOD GOALKEEPING! Championship leaders Forest threaten to get off to the perfect start as Michail Antonio threads a ball down the line towards Lars Veldwijk, but Joe Murphy intercepts and clears for a throw-in.
A scything tackle from Tommy Smith brings the first free-kick of the contest as he goes through the dangerous Antonio on the left and gives Forest an opportunity to whip the ball in, but they decline and opt to keep possession.
Harry Bunn does well to fend off multiple challenges on the right flank and produce a turn inside Jamaal Lascelles but his shot hits the side netting.
Henri Lansbury gets through the Town backline far too easily after weak challenges from Lynch and Paul Dixon but Murray Wallace does well to distract the Forest midfielder by getting across and the former Arsenal man's shot is sliced into the side netting.
A poor challenge from Adam Hammill on Eric Lichaj after the latter's neat turn offers Forest another set piece on the left but Lansbury's delivery is terribly wasteful and goes straight out of play for a goal-kick.
OFF THE POST! Town win a free-kick at the back after Veldwijk's high boot on Wallace before the Terriers launch it up the other end to Jon Stead, who collects the ball in space and decides to shoot.
His choice is so nearly vindicated as his right-footed effort from the left-hand side of the area hits the base of the upright and Forest scramble clear.
Hammill is the next to try his luck, cutting in from the left and unleashing a powerful effort from around 30 yards out, but it fails to trouble Darlow in the Forest goal this time and is high and wide.
Antonio is causing constant problems for Smith at right-back and his latest teasing cross sees Lynch clear in a hurry, but only to Robert Tesche on the edge of the area.
Sadly for the German, his low shot is scuffed into the ground and bounces well wide of the target.
Town enjoying arguable their best spell of the game here as Hammill's cross evades everyone at the back post before neat play from the winger and his full-back Smith presents an opening for Danny Ward, but he slips after his first shot was blocked.
The Terriers then break again on the right, but Stead is flagged offside.
SAVE! Joe Murphy keeps out Jamie Paterson's low drive from the right as Forest begin to get a foothold in this game.
OFF THE LINE! Lansbury whips in a brilliant corner from the right to find Antonio, but the free-scoring wideman's header is somehow steered off the line by the acrobatic Hammill, who somehow gets behind Murphy to head away.
ANOTHER SAVE! Murphy does superbly to get down to his right and keep out the ever-threatening Antonio's low, stinging strike and concedes a corner in the process.
Antonio is receiving boos left, right and centre from Town fans after taking a dive moments earlier in a tussle with Tommy Smith.
WHAT A MISS! A long ball into the Town area catches out Wallace and falls perfectly for Veldwijk at the back post but the Forest striker snatches at the opportunity and sees it fly wide of the near upright.
CLOSE! Adam Hammill works some room for a cross down the right and elects to whip it low, but sees his centre deflect up off the shins of Lascelles and pose a real problem at the back post for Darlow in the Forest goal and he is forced to concede a corner.
From it, former Town defender Hunt temporarily clears but only to Ward, who fires wide.
Town are beginning to pose more of a threat to the Forest backline on the counter now, but the Terriers need to get Stead into the game perhaps a bit more to unsettle them and open space for the likes of Bunn, Hammill and Ward.
Forest enjoy a spell of possession of their own as they work the ball down the right through Hunt and Paterson before the former's cross is gobbled up in the centre by Murphy, who has been composed in the Terriers goal.
JUST OVER! The unpopular Antonio almost silences the home fans by steering home a Paterson cross but, having peeled off Smith and meeting the centre with a bullet header, his effort goes just over the crossbar.
The game is just fizzling out until the interval now, with both sides guilty of gifting away possession in the last few minutes.
HALF-TIME: Huddersfield Town 0-0 Nottingham Forest. Not the greatest cup tie in the world but, equally, not the worst with both sides having chances in an open contest.
Town have gone closest through Jon Stead's curling strike against the post but Forest have rallied and could feasibly have taken the lead through Michail Antonio, Henri Lansbury and Lars Veldwijk.
Stay tuned for Town writer Doug Thomson's half-time report folks!
Radoslaw Majewski - on loan from Nottingham Forest to Huddersfield Town and therefore ineligible tonight - comes onto the John Smith's Stadium pitch at the interval!

Can Town win the tie in 90 minutes? Why not have your say in our poll below?
We are back underway for the second period here, with Town getting the ball rolling once more.
Forest have made a half-time substitution, with Antonio (to the joy of Terriers fans) being replaced by Chris Burke.
CLOSE! Forest almost find a route to goal as Veldwijk rolls Wallace from a throw-in and slides his left-footed strike just inches past the far post, with nobody able to collect the loose ball in the middle.
Hunt gets away too easily on the right and is able to whip a ball to the far post where he finds Paterson lurking, but his acrobatic volley is charged down by Smith and Town are able to clear their lines eventually.
Better from Town as the ball is slipped wide to Ward, who dummies before delivery a ball into the near post which Bunn challenges for, only to see Darlow claim from behind him.
Neat interplay around the middle third from Town leads to a chance for Hammill but he goes too quickly and ends up scuffing an effort straight at Darlow, who holds on with Bunn in close quarters.
James Vaughan receives a rapturous applause as he sprints down the touchline to begin a warm-up before Forest threaten once more through the increasingly lively Paterson, but the winger will be disappointed with his final effort, which zips well wide of the target.
Town force a succession of corners, one on each flank, and inject panic into the Forest defence, with both balls somehow narrowly avoiding everyone in the centre and going straight through the penalty area and out of play.
He's on again, Town fans! James Vaughan replaces Harry Bunn, who has been impressive once more this evening.
It's almost an instant impact for Vaughan as he waits patiently for Hammill to deliver the ball from out on the left, but Mancienne times his jump brilliantly and meets the cross with a thumping header to clear.
A clever give-and-go between Hunt and substitute Burke allows the latter to win a corner down on the right.
The Forest fans are in raucous mood, urging their side on, but the momentum is halted for the visitors when Lansbury's delivery from the right only yields a free-kick for Town after pushing in the box.
Forest make their second change and bring on another of their big guns as joint top scorer Britt Assombalonga comes on and replaces Veldwijk, who had just moments earlier had a goal ruled out for offside after racing clear.
Butterfield and Dixon are lucky, lucky boys. The former gifts possession to Lansbury, who nips in and causes the latter to slip but the midfielder cannot quite find Assombalonga with his attempted through ball.
Joel Lynch is the first person to enter the book this evening after flooring Lansbury, who had nipped away from the Town man with a clever touch.
GOAL! Disaster for Town as James Vaughan, brought on to break the deadlock, does just that but puts the ball into his own net with a thumping header.
A corner is recycled to Paterson on the near side and the winger sends in a delightful cross but, with several bodies in front of him, Vaughan mistimes his jump, gets it all wrong and hands Forest the lead.
In the midst of all that, Town made their second substitute of the evening by bringing on Duane Holmes for Smith in an attacking change.
I wonder if the goal changed Mark Lillis' mind over who to bring off?
Town make their third and final change of the contest as Sean Scannell comes on to replace Stead, who has been starved of adequate service thi evening.
The latest, and last, in a raft of substitutions as Matt Fryatt takes to the field and Jamie Paterson, conjurer of the only goal of the game, goes off.
Scannell takes on Lichaj and wins his side a free-kick, but Butterfield's delivery is poor and Forest are able to clear with relative ease.
GOAL! That should wrap it up for Forest, who double their lead through Lansbury, who has been excellent throughout, and the midfielder tucks home after capitalising on hesitancy in the Town defence to ram home a snapshot first time.
Town have struggled to contend with the pace and movement of Forest's attack in the last few minutes and the visitors look well-equipped to nab a third goal.
Meanwhile on the touchline, Stuart Pearce is unhappy with referee Mark Brown's decision to penalise Lansbury after Wallace had hauled him down, leading to chants of "Psycho, Psycho" from the visiting fans.
An ambitious pass from Coady to Scannell is well seen out by Lichaj, who shepherds the ball and the winger out of play. Time running out for Town now.
CLOSE! The ball is fizzed in low to the area by Hunt on the near side but Fryatt is unable to adjust his footing in time and the ball ricochets off him and away for a goal kick.
We will have three minutes of stoppage time here.
The attendance for tonight's game is 6509, with 1555 of those in the away end.
CHANCES! Forest go close through a thumping Osborn drive from the edge of the area at one end before Ward works some space for himself at the other end and sees a rasping effort land on the roof of the net.
FULL-TIME: Huddersfield Town 0-2 Nottingham Forest. The Championship leaders stuck to the form table and secured a deserved win to progress to the third round of the Capital One Cup as Town fell to defeat thanks to James Vaughan's own goal and a Henri Lansbury strike.
Town had more than held their own and hit the post through Stead, but Forest's greater attacking resources told in the end as the likes of Britt Assombalonga and Matt Fryatt stepped off the bench to see the Terriers home.
Stay tuned for our match report, player ratings and other post-match coverage once we have heard from interim Huddersfield Town boss Mark Lillis!
