A disappointing defeat for the Terriers.
After a tight game at the John Smiths Stadium, Nottingham Forrest took home the three points and left Huddersfield shook.
Huddersfield Town previously played Nottingham Forrest on Saturday, where the Terriers got hit with an unexpected defeat.
Nottingham had not won a game all season, but after sacking their manager Chris Hughton, they managed to get their first win of the season.
The game started well for Town with some good play at goal and a good team performance overall.
This then turned sour for Huddersfield, conceding to Lewis Grabban (Player to watch) in the 22nd minute. It was a brilliant goal coming from a great run on the wing, crossed into the box where Grabban did a bullet header to put them in the lead.
Just after the second half kicked off, we saw the second goal come in from Nottingham Forrest. A shot from outside the box made Lee Nichols dive for the ball, but this is where Forrest took the advantage. A shot from Forrest caused Lee Nichols to try and get up to save it, but unfortunately, it deflected and went into the back of his own net when he did.
After this, Huddersfield totally shut down; there was a total loss of motivation across the team, and the game was over in their heads.
Looking back onto the game, it was clear that Forrest was way better than they were performing and that they just didn’t want to play under their manager. So, Huddersfield probably hit them at the worst time that they could have done.
Huddersfield will next play Swansea on Saturday; 15:00 KO. Swansea has had a dry past few games, with their last results all coming in as a draw. Huddersfield and Swansea will both be pushing here for the three points. Another game that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
