Nottingham Forest v Derby County Preview, Championship, Friday 6th November 2015

Nottingham Forest head into this game on Friday night having had a difficult opening few months of the new season and their 1-0 defeat away against Preston North End last time out now leaves Dougie Freedman’s sitting in 19th position of the league table with just 14pts.

Derby County head into the game having had a much better start to the new season than their hosts and currently occupy 5th position in the league table on an impressive 30pts. Paul Clement’s side are enjoying a ten match unbeaten run of which they have won eight times and the confidence of the players will obviously be high for this match in front of the sky sports camera’s on Friday night.

Nottingham Forest Team News:

The hosts will still be without striker Britt Assombalonga for this game as he continues to receive treatment, Jonny Williams and David Vaughan are close to returning back into the squad but both remain unavailable for this one.

Derby County Team News:

Will Hughes and Jake Buxton are unavailable for the visitors as they both continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems, but good news for Derby County fans is that Craig Bryson has now returned back to the squad and could be handed a place on the bench for this one.

Nottingham Forest v Derby County Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

I really like the chances of Derby County to win this game on Friday night and they look good value at their current best price of 6/5 on offer from Betfred. Paul Clement’s side are now ten matches unbeaten and with almost a full squad available I can only see one winner of this game.

Nottingham Forest do have home advantage for this match going up against their arch rivals Derby County, but they just don’t look strong enough going forward for me to see them having any real chance of causing an upset, despite their good recent record at home against Derby.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be Derby County to Win as they are definitely the form side heading into this match and with a chance to go top of the Championship league table, I think that should be all the incentive needed for the Derby players to go out and win this match.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Derby County’s Chris Martin to open up the scoring of the game as he is currently his clubs top goalscorer this season and has scored the first goal six times from his eight goals scored, so the statistics are certainly in his favour.
