A dramatic last 15 minutes at the iPro Stadium will be remembered for a long time by Nottingham Forest supporters as they watched their side turn around not only the game against Derby but potentially their season.
The memories will last but the optimism will not unless the Reds can take another three points from their away fixture with Fulham on Wednesday night.
The two sides had sharply contrasting fortunes at the beginning of the season but Forest's slide and a measured recovery at Craven Cottage means that only three points currently separates them in the Championship table.
Fulham too had a late winner at the weekend, Bryan Ruiz netting to secure a 2-1 victory against Reading and manager Kit Symons was quick to praise the Costa Rican, saying: "He's just come back from a little injury and he was good. So I involved him and he came on and scored the winner, so I'm delighted."
The corresponding fixture at the City Ground in September was an exciting affair with Forest running out 5-3 winners thanks to a Britt Assombalonga hat-trick.
