After 46 games and a two-legged semi-final, we’ve arrived at the most expensive game in world football – the Championship play-off final. Almost 90,000 fans will be making their march down Wembley Way on Sunday with the winners taking their rightful place back in the Premier League. This year, the game will be contested between Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest.

Huddersfield

After being relegated a few years back, Huddersfield had to pick themselves back up and regroup as a squad and as a club – and they’ve certainly managed that in the second half of the campaign. They’re playing with house money now and with a team that seems to be full of resolve, they’re going to back themselves to go further than anyone would’ve anticipated just a few months ago.

Team News

Vallejo, Schofield and Pearson have all been ruled out for this one with Turton being a fitness concern.

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have been known as a sleeping giant for many, many years, having last been relegated from the top flight of English football back in 1999. They’ve been away from the limelight for more than two decades and they’ve even been down to the third tier, but all of that heartache has led them to the doorstep of the Premier League in a game where they’ll probably be seen as favourites.

Team News

Lowe and Grabban are the only players confirmed to be missing out on the big day at Wembley with a fully fit squad aside from that ready for the trip.

Factors to Consider

  • Huddersfield finished the season in 3rd place whereas Forest finished in 4th place.
  • Huddersfield have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Forest have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Huddersfield have scored 10 goals and conceded three in their last six games.
  • Forest have scored 10 goals and conceded six in their last six games.

Conclusion

While both sides will be experiencing some nerves throughout the course of the afternoon, we expect to see a few more from Forest given the relative experience Huddersfield have in this department over the last few years. The Terriers weren’t expected to be at this point and we think they’ll have a ‘nothing to lose’ mentality that should take them over their foes with a 1-0 win to send them into the big time.
