Derby County v Nottingham Forest betting tips

Posted on: 17th December 2018

The rivalry between Derby and Nottingham Forest is intense and that’s particularly the case this season considering both teams are gunning for promotion.

The Rams are three points better off than their neighbours and have the chance to go third on Monday night, with Frank Lampard’s side having won six of their ten encounters at Pride Park this season.County are in decent shape after winning four of their past six games and the loan trio of Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Harry Wilson have made a sizeable difference since the beginning of the campaign.

A recent 1-0 triumph at Wigan illustrated that they can scrap out a win when required and home advantage could count against a side who fluffed their lines in their previous game.

Forest lost at home to Preston and are in danger of losing touch when it comes to the play-off spots, with Aitor Karanka’s side previously going to Villa Park and taking part in a crazy match which finished 5-5.

While they have only lost once on the road this season, they have merely won three matches and it’s hard to see how they can play for a draw in a cauldron atmosphere.

Therefore, back Derby to deliver a win for their supporters and put themselves firmly in the picture when it comes to automatic promotion.
