Derby County

Last updated: Tue 18 December 2018 14:42
In Brief

Derby pick up Wigan win. Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne injured. Joe Ledley and George Evans doubtful. Bradley Johnson suspended.

Looking Back

Earned 1-0 win at Wigan last time out with Jack Marriott scoring his seventh goal in 10 games.

Will be marginally disappointed not to have won by more having played against ten men for 75 minutes.

Looking Ahead

Huge game for both sides with Curtis Davies, Craig Forsyth, Mason Bennett, Marcus Olsson and George Thorne still out.

Joe Ledley and George Evans are both huge doubts too.

Bradley Johnson is still out banned.

Points of Interest

Have six wins, two draws and two losses at Pride Park this season.

Nottingham Forest

Last updated: Tue 18 December 2018 14:42
In Brief

Forest suffer bad defeat at Preston. Michael Dawson doubtful. Danny Fox, Hillal Soudani, Juan Fuentes and Sam Byram injured. Tobias Figueiredo suspended.

Looking Back

Forest suffered a rare defeat as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Preston last weekend. Only a third league loss of the campaign.

It was a rare off day for Lewis Grabban who has scored 15 goals in his last 16 matches.

Looking Ahead

Defence appears to be an issue for Aitor Karanka. Danny Fox, Juan Fuentes and Sam Byram are injured, Tobias Figueiredo is suspended while Michael Dawson is doubtful.

Hillal Soudani is another man still out injured.

No new issues have been reported.

Points of Interest

Have three wins, six draws and just one loss on the road this term. Lost 2-0 at Derby last term and drew 0-0 at City Ground.
