The teams are in and Huddersfield make three changes from their semi-final defeat of Luton. Pipa replaces Ollie Turton at right-wing-back, Levi Colvill comes in for Jon Russell in central midfield and Sorba Thomas gets the nod on the left of a front three ahead of Duane Holmes. Danny Ward has been passed fit and starts at centre-forward, with Danel Sinani to his right. Club captain Jonathan Hogg starts in the middle of a back three.

Nottingham Forest, meanwhile, make one change from the team that beat Sheffield United on penalties in the semi-final as Aston Villa loanee Keinan Davis replaces Sam Surridge up front. That means Brennan Johnson starts up front, ahead of James Garner and Simon Yates in midfield, with Steve Cook in the middle of a back three. Semi-final shootout hero Brice Samba starts in goal.

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.

Kick-off is at 4.30pm BST today, Sunday 29th May at Wembley. Read on to find out on how to watch a Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.
