Recent respective form guides

Derby County's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Rams have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Nottingham Forest's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Forest have hit 8 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Derby County see themselves just below half way in the npower Championship, showing a record of 46 points from their 35 games played so far,

Nottingham Forest are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 35 matches.
