Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Forest make it back-to-back wins?

Nottingham Forest looked like relegation fodder in the early weeks of the season, as the Reds started their campaign with six defeats and one draw from seven under Chris Hughton. However, since Steve Cooper arrived at the City Ground, Forest have shot up the Championship table.

Under Cooper, Nottingham Forest have racked up nine league wins to fire themselves into play-off contention. The Reds recently suffered back-to-back losses to Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town, but they got back on track with a crucial 1-0 victory at Millwall last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 2110 GMT, Thursday 20 January)

Forest have been tough to beat since Cooper took over, with just Fulham, Boro and Huddersfield getting the better of them. Can they see off their rivals and chalk up another precious three points on Saturday?

Derby County Preview – Will the Rams continue their fine form?

After the points deductions, Wayne Rooney’s Derby County remain bang in trouble in the Championship table. However, they moved off the bottom after a stunning 2-0 home win over in-form Sheffield United last Saturday.

Derby are in excellent form, winning four and drawing one of their past five in the Championship. Before the win over the Blades, Rooney’s side beat Blackpool, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City and came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Reading.

The home side are the favourites, but Derby are one of the form sides in the division at present, and Rooney’s men will back themselves to leave the City Ground with a positive result.
