Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield – The winner of tomorrow’s FA Cup clash between two well-informed Championship teams will face Liverpool in the next round. Nottingham Forest are 10 points behind Huddersfield in the Championship table, but they have only lost once in their previous ten games in all competitions.
This is a side that thrashed Leicester City 4-1 in the previous round and has everything it takes to trouble the Terriers, who have been the division’s most consistent team in 2022. Huddersfield’s last defeat was in November 2021, and they have gone 18 games without losing in all competitions, implying a tense night at the Nottingham City Ground tomorrow.
