Huddersfield boss Mark Robins has a fully fit squad to pick from ahead of the clash with Nottingham Forest.

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins has a fully fit squad to pick from ahead of the clash with Nottingham Forest.

Martin Paterson, who has been struggling with illness, was left out of the matchday squad against Wigan at the weekend but is expected to return to the fold.

Fellow striker James Vaughan returned from a knee injury last time out and is in contention to start once again.

Adam Hammill (knee) and Jonathan Hogg (hip) also recovered in time to face Latics and are likely to play some part against Forest.

Nottingham Forest will travel to Huddersfield with an unchanged squad.

The Reds, unbeaten in 15 matches in all competitions after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Blackpool, are waiting to discover if Eric Lichaj will be added to an already extensive injury list, with boss Billy Davies hoping a scan will not reveal a hernia problem.

Midfielders David Vaughan (knee) and Henri Lansbury (back) last week joined Chris Cohen (knee), Dexter Blackstock (knee) and Kelvin Wilson (back) as long-term injury absentees.

Davies has the likes of Dan Harding, Danny Collins, Darius Henderson, Jamie Paterson, Matt Derbyshire and Radoslaw Majewski available should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.
