Footymad preview History of the Nottingham Forest v Derby County fixture

Derby County face a trip to Nottingham Forest at City Ground at lunchtime on Saturday, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 41 games played, Rams have recorded 12 wins, and Nottingham Forest have come away with 19 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2010, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5-2 thriller, in a Championship match.
