Robins keeps faith with starting XI

Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins has selected an unchanged starting XI for tonight’s 7.45pm Sky Bet Championship game at home to Nottingham Forest. 

This means that the Terriers look set to line-up with Captain Alex Smithies in goal behind centre halves Tommy Smith, Anthony Gerrard and former Forest player Joel Lynch; he made 90 appearances during a four year spell at the County Ground before moving to Huddersfield in 2012.

Paul Dixon makes the 300th start of his career at left wing-back with Adam Hammill on the right; they will flank Jonathan Hogg, Adam Clayton and Oliver Norwood.

In attack, James Vaughan makes his 50th League start for the Terriers alongside Nahki Wells, who is making his 100th Football League appearance tonight. 

The only change to the match day 18 comes on the bench, where Martin Paterson replaces Joe Lolley.

Town’s team vs. Nottingham Forest:
1. Alex Smithies (c)
