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.

And here are the Town subs, for good measure.

Nottingham Forest make seven changes to their team and there looks to be something of a tweak in formation too..

And in the interests of equality, here are the Nottingham Forest substitutes too!

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Joel Lynch starts despite an ankle complaint and is joined by Murray Wallace after his red card was rescinded, while there is a place on the bench for James Vaughan after his return to first-team action on Saturday, but injury doubts Wells and Peltier are not risked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.
