Nottingham Forest is taking a short trip down the A52 tonight to continue its formidable form against Derby County

You have to go back to October 2017 as the Rams Forest last took three points down and the Rams are hoping to brag again tonight

Both Forest and Derby are in good shape and both Chris Hughton and Wayne Rooney will feel safe

Before today’s game, we looked at how Forest might line up when entering the Pride Park cauldron

There have been two goals in a row for the Forest Back Four and there really is only one conversation left on the left

Yuri Ribeiro was on hiatus Tuesday night but was scheduled to return to replace Gaetan Bong in today’s fight

Brice Samba will start in goal, with Tobias Figueiredo and Joe Worrall playing in the heart of the back four

Ryan Yates returned to the side on Tuesday night and scored the winning goal for Forest

This was a headache for Hughton, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if the graduate missed something tonight

Cafu and James Garner had formed a wonderful partnership when Yates was injured and they were able to start together tonight

Samba Sow is back from his last injury setback and could hit the bench tonight

Forest has an abundance of talent in attack these days, though Lewis Grabban is missing tonight

Glenn Murray should continue at the front and he hopes to improve his two goals so far for the Reds this season

Behind him, Filip Krovinovic will almost certainly be No. Occupy 10 role after the main role since the loan from Benfica

Luke Freeman came to Rotherham for the game but expects Alex Mighten to win a spot in the starting XI tonight

Anthony Knockaert has been decent lately and it’s likely he’ll get the nod on the right
