Half-time: Huddersfield 0-1 Nottingham Forest

What a football semi-final!

Forest had the majority of possession but Huddersfield did well to deter Yates’ chances with Sarr defending particularly well.

But it’s Colwill’s grief that’s been the difference so far. The own goal splits the teams after an ambitious cross from Garner saw a deflected shot from Yates come in.

Can Huddersfield bounce back? All to play for again in the second half.

It was so unfortunate for loanee Colwill, he tried to clear the ball as Yates looked to score but instead the ball bounced off him and hit the back of the net.

How will Huddersfield handle cash-outs? So far so good with their not nervous defense and Forest’s repulsive chances smelling a second before half-time.

There will be an extra minute.

Huddersfield 0-0 Nottingham Forest, 36 mins

After a brilliant opening start for Huddersfield, this final has so far been all forestry. The best chances have come from Steve Cooper’s side, but so far Huddersfield are doing enough to fend them off.

But there is a glimpse of that Huddersfield brilliance as Thomas leaves Worrall for dust. He catches the ball and Samba is forced to save.

The difference between the attacking teams is that Huddersfield are quick in their chances while Forest take their time to set up theirs. Again Forest are in a good position but that comes from a burst of energy from Davis, you think if he could have won the ball back instead of that slow build up they might have been ahead.

And Huddersfield prove my point by stealing the ball and creating another chance, Thomas however is dispossessed and now Forest have the ball again!

Another free kick for Forest, this time McKenna the player commits a foul. They will have to build deep because the challenge came in their own half.

Possession changes hands but Forest are the winners again, Steve Cooper’s side are really building here and becoming the dominant side. A nod should be sent to Sarr from Huddersfield who has been excellent in defense apart from that hairy moment.
