Huddersfield Town’s Under-21 side will play at Nottingham Forest in the Professional Development League 2 North on Monday. 

The game will start at 1pm at Forest's Wilford Lane training ground, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 7RQ.

Frankie Bunn's side comes into the game on the back of 13 straight victories, the latest coming against Hull City last Monday at PPG Canalside. Highlights of that game can be watched below thanks to HTTV!


That run of form sees Town top the PDL2 North table with 37 points from just 15 games; seven points ahead of second placed Sheffield United with a game in hand. The top two sides from the northern and southern division face each other in the end of season Play-Offs to determine the overall PDL Champions.

Last season the Terriers reached the PDL2 Play-Off Final, but lost 3-2 to hosts Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium despite a brace from Flo Bojaj.

Led by coach Jimmy Gilligan, Nottingham Forest sits fourth in the table with 26 points from 16 games. Forest is one of just two sides to beat Town's Under-21 side this season; they triumphed 2-0 at PPG Canalside when the sides met in August. However, the young Terriers gained revenge with a 1-0 U21 Premier League Cup victory at the John Smith's Stadium in October.

In the PDL2, teams can play a maximum of three overage outfields and an overage goalkeeper, but Bunn has only fielded overage outfield players in two of the team's 17 matches so far this term.
