It has been a somewhat lacklustre start to the season for Wayne Rooney’s men who have only bagged five points in the four games played with only one win. 

That win came in week 3 against Hull City as they won 1-0. 

Derby County head into this clash off the the back of a 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough, which has seen the Rams go undefeated in two games in the Championship. 

The Rams head into this clash after exiting from the second round of the EFL Cup with a 2-1 loss to Sheffield United.

Derby County Team News

 
Good news for Rams supporters is that Tom Lawrence is a chance to play against Nottingham Forest after battling a groin injury. 

Festy Ebosele, Colin Kazim-Richards, Jason Knight, Krystian Bielik are all set to miss the game.  

Nottingham Forest Form 


Chris Hughton has a big job to do if he wants to turn around Nottingham Forest, based on the opening four games. 

It has been a torrid time to support Forest as they have lost all four to sit last in the Championship.

They have suffered losses to Coventry, Bournemouth, Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City. 

Forest also lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup second round in midweek.

Nottingham Forest Team News 


Nottingham Forest finally have some good news as Joe Worrall and Loic Mbe Soh have started training with the main group after recovering from their respective injuries.
