Read on to find out how to watch a Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield live stream today and get the EFL Championship Playoff final online and on TV, no matter where you are in the world.

If Steve Cooper gets Forest over the line, it'll go down as one of the most sensational promotion stories in recent memory. They were glued to the bottom of the table, with four points from eight games, when he took the reins, and in no time at all he transformed them into one of the most exciting teams around. Djed Spence, Joe Worrall and Ryan Yates were all named in the Championship team of the season, while young Brennan Johnson has caught the eye of some of the biggest clubs around.

Forest's rich history and lengthy Premier League absence means it was inevitable that Huddersfield would be painted as the potential villains of the piece, but all that means in reality is that Carlos Corberán's team talk has been done for him. Jordan Rhodes rolled back the years to seal their place in the Playoff final, while in Lee Nicholls they can call upon the services of the Championship's outstanding goalkeeper - which is saying something considering the wonders Brice Samba pulled off to get Forest to this stage.

Kick-off is 4.30pm BST / 11.30am ET. It really is all or nothing. Follow our guide to get an EFL Championship Playoff final live stream and watch Nottingham Forest vs Huddersfield online from anywhere.
