Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest will battle it out for a place in the Premier League at Wembley on Sunday.
The Terriers were the surprise package in the Championship this term. After finishing 20th in 2020/21, Huddersfield went into this season as the third-favourites for relegation, behind only Blackpool and Peterborough United. But Carlos Corberan's side have never been close to the drop zone and instead finished third, two points and one place above their upcoming opponents. That set up a play-off semi-final against Luton Town, which Huddersfield won 2-1 on aggregate.
When Steve Cooper took charge of Forest in September, they were rock-bottom of the Championship having won just one of their first eight games. Since then, Forest have been magnificent: had the season started when Cooper assumed control, his side would have been promoted automatically.
Forest needed a penalty shoot-out to get past Sheffield United in the semi-finals. They looked nervy in the second leg and were holding on for parts of that game, but Forest ultimately got the job done. They are now just one win away from ending a 23-year exile from the Premier League.
Keinan Davis is in line to start for Forest after appearing from the bench against Sheffield United, with Sam Surridge likely to make way. Cooper is unlikely to make any other changes to the side that started the second leg of the semi-final.
Danny Ward is expected to start up top for Huddersfield despite being taken off in the second leg of the Luton tie. Sorba Thomas is fit again after a knee injury and will return to the starting XI in what is a huge boost for Town.
This could be a tight, tense affair: only two of the last nine play-off finals have featured more than two goals. Forest are the favourites and arguably have more star quality in their ranks, but they did finish below Huddersfield in the regular season.
The richest game in football takes place today with the Championship play-off final between Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest.
Wembley welcomes the high-flying duo who were the league’s best teams in the final weeks of the season with a combined 13 wins and just two defeats since March 20.
That tally does not even include their gruelling semi-final victories as Huddersfield saw off a valiant Luton side and Forest were forced to down Sheffield United on penalties.
Usually you have to win the lottery to get your hands on £150m, but on Sunday afternoon, one of Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest will win promotion to the Premier League and pocket themselves a small country's worth of cash. The 2022 Championship play-off final guarantees tension and high drama, but as third plays fourth the game will be fun of quality, too. Make sure you know how to watch a Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest live stream wherever you are.
Huddersfield have barely been out of the play-off mix since September and it comes as no surprise that the Terriers – a Premier League outfit as recently as three seasons ago – are now 90 minutes from a top-flight return.
Substitute Jordan Rhodes' goal eight minutes from time in the semi-final second leg against Luton secured their final berth but it remains to be seen whether the 32-year-old will have forced his way into Carlos Corberan's XI at Wembley. Top scorer Danny Ward seems to have recovered from the injury. Welsh winger Sorba Thomas and his vital set-piece delivery look good to go too.
Nottingham Forest have endured 21 seasons outside the top flight but never have they been closer to a Premier League return than now. Bottom of the table when manager Steve Cooper replaced Chris Hughton in September, with just one point from their first seven games, the Tricky Trees have surged up the Championship through a mixture of high-pressing and ruthless counter-attacking.
Brennan Johnson, son of Forest legend David, has scored 18 goals and provided 10 assists this term, including strikes in both legs of the semi-final victory over Sheffield United. They have Premier League experience at the back thanks to Steve Cook, while Manchester United loanee James Garner has added midfield class.
