Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Derby County take part in the East Midlands Derby on Saturday Nottingham Forest try to consolidate their place in the midfield of the championship.

Meanwhile, Forest has lost each of its four second division games this season and is gone Chris Hughton‘s team as the only team without a point in the league.


Prediction for this match

Given the off-field problems that have restricted transfers, Wayne Rooney is pleased that Derby has already collected five points this season.

There’s a strong argument that it should have been more after conceding two goals at Peterborough United, but last weekend’s goalless draw with Middlesbrough kept things going ahead of the first international break.

While there is evidence that goals could prove to be a problem without Colin Kazim-Richards In the side Phil Jagielka and Curtis Davies have formed a promising partnership behind them.

Although other players are available for the veteran pair, their experience has helped the Rams to concede consecutive goals in the league.

Their expertise could prove crucial this weekend as well, as some of the club’s younger players battle their neighbors in a showdown for the first time in front of a crowded Pride Park.

Rooney will be the first to emphasize that a derby can serve as an equalizer when it comes to facing opponents in opposing form, and Hughton will pass that scenario on in reverse.

Despite losing four games in a row by one goal margin, few Forest supporters will consider their defeats unlucky as Hughton’s side still have very little to offer in the final period.

Hughton effectively gave up the club’s place in the EFL Cup by naming a young team against the Wolverhampton Wanderers, and this only reinforced the argument that he would have to make several personnel changes to save his job in the dugout.

Philip Zinkernagel was the only bright spot in the last third that piles up the pressure Lyle Taylor and Lewis Grabban finding a shape for the first time in a year.
