Who has said what about the game?
The Terriers go into tonight's game looking for a third straight league victory with Chris Powell's men in buoyant mood ahead of the clash.
Midfielder Emyr Huws said: "We are confident we can beat any team when we play like we just have (against Bolton) and there is no reason why we can’t start a run.
“We go into the Forest game full of confidence but we will not get ahead of ourselves.
“We’ll just do things right on the training ground and in matches and try to keep producing the performances we need.”
Any team news?
Manager Chris Powell is still likely to be without Joe Murphy (calf), Mark Hudson (ankle) and James Vaughan (calf) while Jamie Paterson is unavailable to play against his parent club.
Meanwhile the visitors will be without midfielder Ben Osborn (groin) but are hopeful defender Matt Mills will recover from the hamstring injury he picked up in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Middlesbrough.
Tell me about Nottingham Forest
Dougie Freedman's men may have won only three of their opening eight league fixtures but their recent two-match winning streak was halted only by promotion favourites Middlesbrough at the weekend.
Forest have also travelled well so far this season, winning two of their last three matches and not suffering defeat away from home since the opening day of the season.
League Head-To-Head Record
Coincidentally, the last two games at The John Smith's Stadium have both finished 3-0, once to Huddersfield and once to Forest the previous season.
Any Match odds?
With so many parallels between both sides, matching betting is extremely close with both Town and Forest at 13/8 to win and the draw 23/10.
