Betting Tip: Derby County @ 23/20 with bet365

Forest v Derby matches are always a bit tasty, with the Rams making the short trip down the A52 looking to make it four wins on the bounce.

County are also unbeaten in their past ten matches and their only defeat of the season came at home to Leeds at the end of August. Since then, they have been racking up the points and have a chance to go top of the table on Friday.

They say the form book goes out of the window for derby matches although can you really oppose a team who are enjoying such a tremendous run?

Derby are defending very well and the goals are coming from all over the shop, with Andreas Weimann having found his feet in a white shirt with two goals in the past two matches.

Forest sit 19th in the table and have won just one of their seven home matches this season, with the Tricky Trees struggling with injuries but also flailing since Michail Antonio left for West Ham.

Dougie Freedman’s side are without a win in their past eight matches and it’s hard to see beyond an away win when you weight up the previous form of the two sides.

Yes, the City Ground will be a cauldron of noise, although Bradley Johnson, Richard Keogh and Chris Martin are as solid a backbone as there is in this division and the money spent along with Clement’s building of a quality team suggests that the Rams will run out comfortable winners.
