Huddersfield are gunning for a hat-trick of victories when they entertain Nottingham Forest in front of the Sky Sports cameras. The Terriers have enjoyed recent wins over Charlton and Bolton, with bet365 going 6/4 about the Yorkshire side claiming another three points. Chris Powell has been delighted with Emyr Huws’ contribution since arriving from Wigan, with the Welshman a stand-out 14/1 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock and you can also bet each-way on First Goalscorer with this bookmaker.
Forest will be tricky opponents and have recently won away to QPR and Birmingham, with Dougie Freedman’s side 2/1 (BetVictor) to claim victory at the John Smith’s Stadium, while the draw is a 12/5 chance (Winner) for those expecting a close encounter. Huddersfield have conceded in all of their Championship matches to date, so a winning correct score bet could be found by backing 2-1 to the Terriers (8/1 Stan James) or maybe an exciting 3-2 scoreline available at 33/1 with William Hill.
A good bet along similar lines could be both teams to score and Ladbrokes go 8/11 about this happening, with Huddersfield having plundered more goals in their past two matches than the previous six put together! You can get a bigger 5/6 (SkyBet) about Over 2.5 Goals, with both sides likely to be targeting a win which would see them climb into the top half of the Championship.
However, it should be noted that Forest are short of firepower thanks in part to Michail Antonio joining West Ham on transfer deadline day and Huddersfield can be backed at 10/3 (bet365) to win this game to nil and record their first clean sheet of the season in the process.
Emyr Huws to score first – 14/1 (Paddy Power)
