Huddersfield Town have a pretty miserable record at Nottingham Forest in recent years but manager Chris Powell is looking to put together a strong finish to the season.Preview - Nottingham Forest v Huddersfield Town

The 2-1 win over Ipswich Town on Easter Monday sees Town 12 points and five places clear of the relegation zone with five matches still to play.

That win was Town's first in eight games but a mid-table finish is not out of reach, which would be their best league position in 15 years should they secure it.

Chris Powell saw his side thump Forest 3-0 at the John Smith's Stadium back in November - which was their first win over them in 10 meetings in all competitions.

Town's record at the City Ground is just as bad; Forest have won the last five meetings on their home patch.

The Terriers' last win at the City Ground was a 3-1 win in December 2000.

Town have not won any of their last five away games, losing two, while Forest have not won any of their last three matches at home, losing two.

Powell will still be without Harry Bunn as he remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Striker Ishmael Miller and midfielder Jonathan Hogg could make a return to feature against Forest.

Forest boss Dougie Freedman will give a late fitness test to Chuba Akpom after suffering a minor rib injury at Brentford on Easter Monday.

Front pairing Dexter Blackstock and Modou Barrow are rated as 50/50 to play a part but midfielder Gary Gardner is back from suspension.

Matty Fryatt is likely to remain sidelined with an Achilles injury but Michail Antonio has been declared fit despite nursing a number of knocks.
