Our prediction for this Championship match:
City Ground will host Friday’s East Midlands derby between Nottingham Forest and Derby County. The Reds made a slow start to the season, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Following a 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers, Nottingham Forest shared the spoils with Rotherham United in their last league match, with Sammy Ameobi scoring the equalizer ten minutes before the final whistle.
The Reds aim to escape the danger zone, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in the local derby. The likes of Bachirou, Blackett, and Worrall are all likely to miss the game through injury. The Rams, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Watford and Huddersfield in the previous two league fixtures. Considering that key player Jordon Ibe remains in the recovery room for the visitors, home win should be considered.
