Friday night sees a big derby match coming from the Championship. It actually is Derby who are in action in the derby as they go and face their bitter old rivals Nottingham Forest.
It hasn’t been the most auspicious of seasons from Forest who start the weekend just above the drop zone in the English second tier.
The Tricky Trees are without a win in their last eight league fixtures (D3 L5) and are badly on the skids with a leaky defence and a lack of goals being scored (just eleven all season).
It’s a different story for the Rams who are back in promotion-chasing mode having won five of their last six Championship fixtures (D1). The goals of Chris Martin are firing Derby along nicely and the Rams are 23/20 for the win, with Forest kicking off on home soil as 5/2 underdogs.
