Half-Time Report: Huddersfield Town cutting down Nottingham Forest

Huddersfield Town head into half time with a comfortable lead over Nottingham Forest thanks to goals from Joel Lynch and Nahki Wells.

Nottingham Forest's miserable run of Championship form is showing no sign of improving as they head into half time two goals down at Huddersfield Town.

The visitors were left stunned as former Forest defender Joel Lynch put the Terriers in front inside the first minute, heading home a long throw from Jack Robinson.

The hosts had goalkeeper Alex Smithies to thank for preserving their lead in the 10th minute when he produced an impressive save to deny Henri Lansbury, and it was not long before the Terriers gave themselves some breathing space.

Nahki Wells marked his 150th appearance in league football with a goal in the 20th minute, heading a teasing cross from Grant Holt into the corner of the net to double Huddersfield's advantage.

Forest's best chance of the first half fell to debutante Tom Ince just after the half-hour mark, but Smithies proved too good for the Hull City loanee at close range.
