Huddersfield confident ahead of Forest clash

The Terriers are currently second in League One, eight points ahead of Forest and coach Yorath said earlier in the week: "Everyone in the club is positive that we can challenge for promotion but it's no good talking about it, you have to go out and do it.

"We've now got a great game to prepare for which, hopefully, we will be strong enough and positive enough to win."

Star striker Pawel Abbott is set to return for the game.

The 11-goal frontman was taken off during last week's 0-0 draw with Bradford but Huddersfield physio Lee Martin told the club website:

"Pawel took quite a heavy challenge but I'll be very surprised if it's a problem for Saturday.

"The injury is at the bottom of the thigh and just above the knee but although it's a stud injury, it didn't need stitching.

"It's still swollen and sore but we're just starting to get the full range of movement back and it should progress quickly from there."
