Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Forest continue revival?

We’ve seen it time and time again when a new manager takes over the reigns at a club, the players start performing and results start to turn around and Nottingham Forest are no exception following the recent appointment of former Newcastle United and Brighton manager, Chris Hughton.

Since his arrival, Forest have registered a valuable 1-0 win away from at Blackburn Rovers and a point in a 1-1 draw at home with Rotherham United, so the Tricky Trees will head into this Friday night clash against their fierce rivals, Derby County, in a positive frame of mind.

It had been a horrific start to the new Championship season for the hosts as they’d lost all of their opening five league matches on the trot which culminated in former coach, Sabri Lamouche, being shown the door after not only a poor start to this season but also failing to guide Forest to what seemed an almost guaranteed play-off spot at the end of last season.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Derby County Preview – Can Rams take derby spoils?

Derby County manager, Philip Cocu, finds himself in a precarious position ahead of this Friday night local derby away at Nottingham Forest as The Rams currently occupy a place in the bottom three of the Championship having lost five of their first six matches of this new campaign.

Derby County’s only highlight in what has been a miserable start to this season’s Championship campaign was a 1-0 win away from home at Norwich City but The Rams have uncharacteristically lost all three of their home matches to date with losses to Reading, Blackburn and Watford, while results away from home continue to produce inconsistency.

The Rams have lost two of their three away matches to date and another defeat this Friday night could well see Cocu being shown the exit door, especially with the stakes being a little higher against Nottingham Forest.
