Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberan will be without Ryan Schofield, Alex Vallejo and Matty Pearson, all of whom are injured.

Oliver Turton could return to the matchday squad having missed the second leg against Luton, but may have to settle for a place on the bench.

It's a toss-up for a spot on the left between Harry Toffolo and Sorba Thomas, while top scorer Danny Ward is expected to start ahead of Jordan Rhodes up front.

Predicted Huddersfield starting XI

Nicholls; Lees, Hogg, Colwill; Pipa, Russell, O'Brien, Toffolo; Sinani, Rhodes, Thomas.

Keinan Davis is expected to pull through and start after a fitness scare, meaning Sam Surridge will likely drop to the bench.

Aston Villa loanee Davis will partner Brennan Johnson up front, with Philip Zinckernagel operating in the number ten position just behind.

The only expected injury absentees for Steve Cooper's side are Max Lowe and Lewis Grabban.

Predicted Nottignham Forest starting XI

Samba; Worrall, Cook, McKenna; Spence, Yates, Garner, Colback; Zinckernagel; Davis, Johnson.

A late charge helped Huddersfield climb up the table in the final few weeks of the season. Six wins from their final seven league games saw them secure third place, six points behind Bournemouth who took automatic promotion alongside champions Fulham.

A nervy semi-final first leg with Luton ended 1-1 with Danel Sinani and Sonny Bradley getting the goals, but Jordan Rhodes' 82-minute effort saw the Terriers scrape a 2-1 aggregate victory.

After a dismal start to the campaign under former boss Chris Hughton, Steve Cooper came in and revived Forest's hopes.

Having lost six of their first seven Championship games, Forest would be defeated just six more times over the course of the campaign, eventually ending the term with 80 points.

They tussled it out with Sheffield United in the semi-finals, with each side enjoying a 2-1 away win to end the tie 3-3 on aggregate.

Brice Samba was the hero on penalties, saving three efforts to send his side to Wembley.

It's an incredibly tough game to call. Huddersfield have some wily campaigners who have achieved promotion through the play-offs before, but the excitement around this Forest side is hard to ignore.

Cooper lost with Swansea in last season's final, but he may way earn some retribution here by taking Forest into the Premier League for the first time since 1998/99.

Score prediction: Huddersfield 1-2 Nottingham Forest
