Huddersfield will look to make a return to the Premier League this afternoon when they face Nottingham Forest in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Huddersfield enjoyed two seasons in the top-flight before they were relegated back to the Championship in 2019 but manager Carlos Corberan has the Terriers punching above their weight once again.

After defeating Luton Town at home to edge a 2-1 aggregate win in the semi-finals, they face a Nottingham Forest side who needed penalties to beat Sheffield United at the City Ground.

Steve Cooper has produced a remarkable turnaround at Forest since taking over in September, when the club were bottom of the Championship after seven games played, and they are now closer than ever to ending their 23-year wait for a top-flight return.

Here’s everything you need to know.
