Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield Town: When is EFL Championship play-off final at Wembley, kick off time, how to watch, referee, latest odds
This weekend will see two former Premier League sides battle it out for a place in the promised land of the Premier League as Nottingham Forest take on Huddersfield Town in the English Championship play-off final.
The two sides finished in the third and fourth positions in the EFL Championship, with Huddersfield overcoming a plucky Luton Town side in the play-off semi-finals, while Steve Cooper’s Forest side progressing thanks to a penalty shoot out win over Sheffield United.
With such a huge prize on offer, the Championship play-off could be one of the most exciting finals of all time, with a resurgent Forest side looking to climb back into the English top tier for the first time since 1999, while Huddersfield push for a quick return to the Premier League after spending just three seasons out of it.
Sitting rock bottom of the Championship when Steve Cooper took over in September, a win at Wembley for the Tricky Trees would complete a remarkable turnaround, with Forest’s resurgence under the former Swansea boss already one of the stories of the season.
And The Terriers are another side who have enjoyed an unexpected turnaround in fortunes themselves. The Yorkshire side were tipped by many for the drop following a season of struggle, but under Spanish boss Carlos Corberán, Town have ended the campaign is stunning form thanks to a nine game unbeaten run.
