Derby County's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rams have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Nottm. Forest's away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Forest's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 5 goals for and 3 against.

Nothing seems to be going right for the Rams at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Forest come away with an easy victory. Away win
