Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce was a Reds player the last time they visited Huddersfield in the League Cup.
The Capital One-backed competition was sponsored by Littlewoods back in 1989-90, when second round ties took place over two legs.
Brian Clough’s Forest, of the old Division I (now Premier League) and the League Cup holders, were held 1-1 by Third Division (now League I) Town at the City Ground, where defender Ken O’Doherty got the visitors’ goal before an 18.976 crowd.
Eoin Hand’s team looked to be on their way out when Forest took a 3-1 lead at Leeds Road, where 13,262 watched.
But late goals by Craig Maskell, his second of the game, and Mike Cecere, forced extra time.
The additional 30 minutes remained scoreless, and Forest went through on away goals, eventually retaining the trophy by beating Oldham 1-0 in the final at Wembley, where they had beaten Luton Town 3-1 the year before.
The Latics line-up included Frankie Bunn, Town’s senior development coach and father of Harry, who could face Forest after a couple of bright Championship outings.
The first Town-Forest League Cup clash was in 1970-71, also in round two.
Both teams were in the top flight, fighting out a 0-0 draw at Leeds Road, where 18.165 were in attendance.
Forest were 2-0 winners in a replay seen by 15,818.
They lost 2-1 at Birmingham City in round three, with Tottenham Hotspur the eventual cup winners with a 2-0 Wembley win over Aston Villa.
Town’s best-ever League Cup run came in 1967-68, when they reached the semi-finals.
Town went down 6-3 on aggregate to Arsenal over the two legs.
