A point apiece

FT: Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

So Emyr Huws' fourth goal of the season rescues a point for Huddersfield tonight. They remain 13th in the Championship table.

Forest, who might feel they let all three points slip from their grasp, move up to 10th in the table, until the weekend at least.

Reaction

FT: Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest defender Kelvin Wilson tells Sky Sports:

"At 1-0, it is always tight. We hit the post and then it was a great clearance off the line.

"In the end, maybe a draw was a fair result.

"We were camped in (our own half) a bit, and tried to hit them on the counter attack, which worked."

Reaction

FT: Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Huddersfield goal scorer Emyr Huws tells Sky Sports:

"We started off well but conceded a sloppy goal. Credit to Forest, they made it hard for us to get some chances.

"But with the late goal, we'll take the point. They were defending so well and made it compact and hard for us."

FT: Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

For so long, it had looked as though Nottingham Forest were going to shut out Huddersfield tonight and earn a third consecutive away win.

But Emyr Huws' deflected strike drew the hosts level six minutes from time.

A point is probably fair, on reflection, for both sides. But Forest could so easily have doubled their lead just before the Terriers' equaliser, when Chris Burke struck the post and Chris O'Grady's rebound was cleared off the line.

FULL-TIME

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

The final whistle goes and they will share the points here tonight.

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Time is ticking by and neither side have created an opening yet in added time.

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Three minutes have been added here. Is there to be a late, late winning goal?

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

The Huddersfield fans are excited now. They sense there is still time for their team to win this. Just over two minutes of normal time remain, plus stoppage time.

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Henri Lansbury has a chance to restore Forest's lead immediately with a free-kick on the edge of the box but he fires way, way over the bar.

GOAL (Huws)

Huddersfield 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Huddersfield are level. Emyr Huws picks the ball up 25 yards out, slightly to the left of centre, and strikes a fierce shot towards goal. It takes a really heavy deflection and flies in off the underside of the bar. That's a tad unfortunate for Forest, but Huddersfield won't care. Game on!

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest goal scorer Ryan Mendes comes off and is replaced by Tyler Walker.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Forest really should be two goals ahead. Can Huddersfield punish them and grab an equaliser?

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

A second change for Huddersfield as Sean Scannell is replaced by Joe Lolley.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Forest counter brilliantly and Chris Burke looks certain to score but, one-on-one with the keeper, he strikes the post.

On the rebound, Chris O'Grady shoots first time but his effort is cleared off the line marvellously by Martin Crainie.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Winger Chris Burke comes on to replace Jamie Ward for Forest.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Dorus de Vries does well there to come out and punch clear another Huddersfield corner. The hosts have had a number of corners in the last 10 minutes but haven't yet made one count.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Ishmael Miller shows his power and wins the hosts another corner. This time it is aimed towards the near post, but Joel Lynch can't direct his header goalwards.

At the other end, Forest striker Chris O'Grady forces Jed Steer into a low save at his near post.

Just 20 minutes left for Dougie Freedman's side to hold on.

SUBSTITUTION

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

The hosts make a substitution and it is Mustapha Carayol coming off, to be replaced by Nahki Wells.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Mustapha Carayol runs at Eric Lichaj once again and this time wins another corner for Huddersfield. The ball comes in dangerously towards the back post but Forest get it away to safety once more.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

From that corner, the Huddersfield players are appealing for a penalty for handball, but the referee is having none of it.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

The Huddersfield fans are finding their voices and started to urge their team on. With less than half an hour to go, they want them to show a tad more urgency. Harry Bunn does well to get to the byline and win a corner.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Harry Bunn sends in a good left-footed cross, aimed for Sean Scannell, but Daniel Pinillos does well to clear for Nottingham Forest. That's good defending.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

At the other end, Forest win themselves a corner on the counter, and Michael Mancienne gets his head to it but his effort goes wide of the far post. That was at least a half-chance for the Reds.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Forest are doing their best to keep the ball and frustrate the home side. They have dealt with the high, aerial balls quite well tonight. Huddersfield look far more dangerous when they play it along the floor.

Mustapha Carayol makes a good run forward and squares the ball for Harry Bunn, who has another go for goal, but his shot is blocked again.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Neither side made any changes at the break by the way. What Huddersfield have done, though, is come quickly out the blocks, with a bit more intent.

Just what Chris Powell would have wanted, but he won't be smiling until his side find the back of the net.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Harry Bunn tries to level for Huddersfield immediately but his powerful shot is blocked by the head of Kelvin Wilson, and deflected out for a corner. That was going in, by the looks of things.

A positive start to this half from the hosts.

KICK-OFF

HT: Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Just three shots on target in the first half, but Nottingham Forest have the one that counts.

Huddersfield will be looking for much more attacking intent after the break.

HT: Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

The John Smith's Stadium is not an overly happy place as the players trudge off. Things started so encouragingly for Huddersfield, but they have not have the best of times since going behind.

Will Chris Powell make any substitutions at the break?

HALF-TIME

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

The whistle goes for the end of the first half and Ryan Mendes' sweet strike sees the visitors Nottingham Forest lead at the break.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Two minutes of added time have been indicated at the end of this half.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

We're approaching half-time and Huddersfield will want to get into that dressing room as quickly as possible. They've not really created anything since going behind. Something will need to change for them, after the break.

Forest's Jamie Ward tries to double their lead with a dipping shot from long range but Jed Steer does well to hold it.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

The referee has to step in to calm things down as Jamie Ward and Jason Davidson clash and they have a little bit of 'afters'. Eventually, they are separated and play resumes.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Forest have found their feet since going ahead and they are frustrating the home side now. Huddersfield can't find the fluidity they showed going forward in the early stages.

It was certainly a fine strike by the 25-year-old to put Forest ahead.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Jamie Ward is clearly fouled by Dean Whitehead and Forest have a free kick about 40 yards from goal. The referee decided that didn't warrant a booking yet, naturally, the home side disagree. Whitehead is a tad fortunate, I'd say. The resultant free-kick is easily gathered by Huddersfield keeper Jed Steer.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

It has all gone a little bit flat for Huddersfield. They'll need to pick themselves up and get back into this half.

Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

That goal has really silenced the home crowd because their side had dominated proceedings in the first 20 minutes.

Forest will be delighted to take advantage with their first real, meaningful attack of the game.
