WATCH: Sports Editor Mel Booth previews Huddersfield Town v Nottingham Forest

Examiner Sports Editor Mel discusses the weekend clash with Stuart Pearce's side as Town look to make it their longest run without defeat since returning to the Championship in 2012

Huddersfield Town can make a small piece of history on Saturday at home to Nottingham Forest, because if the Terriers avoid defeat to Stuart Pearce's side it will be seven league games unbeaten for Chris Powell and his men - the best run since Town returned to the second tier in 2012.

Town took five points from a triple header of Blackpool, Brighton and Hove Albion and Ipswich Town, with the latter seeing Powell's side come from two goals down to secure a point at Portman Road.

The Terriers come up against a Forest side without a win in their last seven which has seen the early-season league leaders drop to seventh but the manager has already attempted to dismiss any idea that this will not be a difficult test.


Our Sports Editor Mel Booth will be at the John Smith's Stadium this weekend to cast his eye over events and he says Town face a big test in their attempts to keep their unbeaten run going against Forest.

Watch the video above to see Mel discuss the confidence that Powell has instilled in the players, the difficulty of trying to predict a Terriers starting lineup at the moment and how far the team have come under the manager's guidance.
