  • Nottingham Forest have only failed to score in three of their last 18 games across all competitions.

Forest and Terriers clash for final Premier League place

There is one place left in the Premier League for next season and on Sunday Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest will battle it out for that final spot in the Championship play-off final.

This will be the fourth meeting between these two sides this season and Forest have the edge. The City Ground club won the first meet 2-0 in Huddersfield back in September, the Terriers then won 1-0 away in December and Forest claimed a 2-1 FA Cup victory in March.

Championship play-off finals tend to be close games, which should be no surprise considering what is at stake, and four of the last six have been decided by one-goal margins, while one went the full distance and required penalties.

I’m expecting another close clash on Sunday between two fairly evenly-matched teams and one market that stands out here is both teams to score.

Both teams capable of scoring

Both teams to score may have only been a winning bet in one of the three meetings between these two sides this season, but there are a few reasons to expect both to find a way through at Wembley.

Huddersfield have scored in each of their last nine games and there have been goals at both ends in three of their last five. Forest have only failed to score in three of their last 18 games across all competitions, and both teams have scored in four of their last five.

There were goals at both ends in Forest’s two games against Sheffield United in the semi-finals and in the away leg of Huddersfield’s tie with Luton, so at evens backing both teams to score looks a strong option for the main bet.

Extra time could be required

Forest go into the game as favourites but I think these teams are fairly evenly matched and this game could well be all square after 90 minutes. The Terriers finished the season with 82 points and Forest managed 80, and both enjoyed strong finishes to the campaign.

Huddersfield go into the play-off final on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run, while Forest have lost just three of their last 21 games against Championship opposition – and one of those was against the Blades last time out as they ultimately went on to win the tie via a penalty shootout.

I may be backing both teams to score but I’m not anticipating a high-scoring affair either and a 1-1 draw looks a reasonable option for the correct score bet. Forest have gone five games without a clean sheet and have conceded exactly one goal in four of those games, while it has been six games since Huddersfield conceded more than one goal.

Huddersfield’s Harry Toffolo looks a good contender for an anytime goal at a big price after a strong finish to the season. The 26-year-old wideman managed five goals in the final seven games of the regular season and made an impact going forward in both games against Luton, registering an assist in the first leg and taking two shots in the second.
