Derby sit comfortably in 12th in the Championship with Forest 3 points and 3 places above their local rivals. Form has been hard to come by this season for these two teams. Neither side has registered 3 wins in a row this season.
In Derby’s last home game they put in a brilliant performance to beat much-fancied Middlesbrough 3-1. However, they followed this up with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton.
Forest started 2013 with a 3-0 defeat by Blackburn and a shock exit of the FA Cup by lower division side Oldham. They managed to bounce back last weekend, beating Peterborough United 2-1.
Form goes out the window in a big derby. Rams boss Nigel Clough may hand striker Jamie Ward his first start since the reverse fixture in September. After suffering a torn hamstring, Jamie Ward may be able to boost Derby towards the play-off places.
Forest are likely to rely on top scorer Billy Sharp. With 10 goals so far this season he’ll be hoping to bag his first in the East Midlands derby.
It’s a difficult game to predict but it should be a tight game which will probably be decided by one goal. In this passionate affair it wouldn’t be a surprise to see plenty of yellow cards and even a red or two.
