Huddersfield Town head to the City Ground looking to snap a four match losing run... but victories away at Nottingham Forest have tended to come in pairs...
Here are three key individual battles which could go a long way towards deciding the outcome of this clash...
Nahki Wells v Matt Mills
Second in the Nottingham Forest goalscoring charts thanks to his potent threat from set pieces, centre back Matt Mills spends the majority of his time engaged in the pursuit of clean sheets - and Nahki Wells is the man who stands in his way this weekend.
The Bermudian striker now has 12 goals in all competitions this season and has scored in each of the last two games. Looking fresher now Town are back to one game a week, Wells has benefited from the additional support in the shape of January signings Karim Matmour and Elvis Manu - but they are struggling for fitness while traditional no.10 Jamie Paterson is ineligible this weekend.
Paterson has set up both of Wells' previous strikes, and the understanding between the two makes for a nightmare for opposition defenders.
Wells must ensure Mills does not prevent him striking up a similar connection with the rest of the forward line in his pursuit of more scoring success.
Watch David Wagner talk style and results
Jonathan Hogg v Robert Tesche
German midfielder Robert Tesche made his Forest debut against Town back in 2014, and is now enjoying a regular run of starts in the absence of the injured Henri Lansbury.
An influential cog in Dougie Freedman’s midfield, his partnership alongside Gary Gardner has been a feature of January’s successes.
With Tesche enjoying a more advanced position, it is likely to be Jonathan Hogg charged with keeping an eye on him, especially given his increased responsibility while Emyr Huws is on the sidelines.
Hogg has done well in recent weeks - form apparently not derailed by the red card at Reading in the cup, and was very much the senior figure in the centre of the park at Preston , alongside the excellent Philip Billing . A win in this midfield battle could be crucial to a win on the final whistle.
James Husband v Jamie Ward
David Wagner was quick to extend James Husband’s loan from Middlesbrough after the conclusion of the game at Preston, and the defender will be desperate to extend his run in the side after starting at Deepdale.
To do that, he’ll have to keep the rampaging Jamie Ward in check - and the 29-year-old has hit formidable form since the turn of the year. All three of his goals have come since the start of January, while he is second in Forest’s assists charts with four to his name so far this term.
Dangerous with the ball at his feet, Ward is fond of crossing from the wing and cutting inside.
Wagner values Husband’s pace and attacking impetus, but Ward isn’t one to shirk defensive duties either, meaning the left back will have to be at the top of his game to have a telling influence in the attacking third.
