Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest have met 62 times in their history, the first meeting coming all the way back in 1911.
Nottingham Forest have won 20 of these encounters, drawn 17 and lost 25. But, despite Huddersfield having a better record against Forest, Forest have the biggest win in the fixture, a 6 - 1 win in the Championship back in 2013.
The two clubs have met three times in the 2021/22 season, twice in the Championship and once in the FA Cup.
The first clash, back in September ended with a 2 - 0 win for Forest, their first win of the Championship season and the end of a 13 match winless streak. A goal from Lewis Grabban and an own goal from Lee Nicholls sealed the win for Steve Cooper’s men.
However, Huddersfield won the return fixture. A goal from Duane Holmes secured a 1 - 0 win for The Terriers, which in December greatly strengthened their push for the Play-off places.
The final match-up between Forest and Huddersfield came in the FA Cup fifth round. Huddersfield opened the scoring, with a Tom Lees goal in the 13th minute. But Forest responded within the first half with goals from Sam Surridge and Ryan Yates.
Overall, at the end of the Championship season Huddersfield finished in third just two points ahead of Forest, with the same amount of wins, but two more draws and two fewer losses than Forest. Therefore, with the competition being so tight between the two clubs, this Play-off Final could be a close affair, but a definite chance for Forest to end their long absence from the top flight of English football.
