Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest: Play-off final prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news today

It’s once again time for the richest game in football as Huddersfield face Nottingham Forest in today’s Championship play-off final.

The Premier League and all the financial rewards that come with it are on offer at Wembley, as two sides who are very familiar with each other go head-to-head.

Forest won the most recent meeting, in the fifth round of the FA Cup, while in the Championship it’s one apiece this season after both sides won away from home.

Huddersfield appeared to have left it late to get through their play-off semi-final tie against Luton, as Jordan Rhodes netted an 82nd-minute winner in the second leg, but that was nothing compared to the stress Forest fans had to endure.

Steve Cooper’s side, who were bottom of the table when he took over in September, needed penalties to get past Sheffield United as they kept their dream of a return to the top-flight after 23 years away alive.


Date, kick-off time and venue

The Championship play-off final is scheduled for a 4.30pm BST kick-off time today, Sunday May 29, 2022.

Wembley Stadium in London will host.

Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest prediction

It looks set to be an incredibly tight and nervy affair at Wembley.

Cooper has taken Forest on an incredible journey this season, both in the league and the FA Cup, and his side have made it to Wembley in memorable fashion.

But against a Huddersfield side now unbeaten in their last nine matches, they might just fall short on the biggest stage.

Huddersfield to win, 1-0.
