Meanwhile, Forest beat Sheffield United on penalties after a 3-3 epic between the pair.

Huddersfield v Nottingham Forest: What has been said?

Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan: “We knew that having the right mentality and the right character was going to be important if we wanted to reach Wembley.

“First of all, I must congratulate the players and I’m looking forward to the final.

“Nothing makes me feel more proud than seeing how happy they are and how much they identify with the team.

“We’ll rest in the next couple of days and then we will start working towards that game.”

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper: “We are hopefully going to give so many people a day to remember.

“I can’t sum it up at the moment, the reality is that we have another step to go. 

“To get through two legs of a semi-final play-off you have to do a bit of everything – you have to play well, have to suffer, have to have a bit of luck and dig in – all of the things you have to do to be a real team we have done.”
