Derby County hosts Nottingham Forest in the 22nd round of the Championship. The meeting will be played on Monday, December 17, at the iPro Stadium in Derby.
The Derby County team is ranked fifth in the standings in the second level of English football with a 37 point asset. The Rams have won 52% of their matches this season – they have 11 wins so far and will be pursuing their 12th home-grown success against a direct competitor for a top 6 place. Nottingham Forest scorers are seventh with 34 points in their asset, so they can catch up with Derby County teams if they win at iPro Stadium.
In the last round Derby County recorded a minimal success with 1:0 as a guest of Wigan Athletic. Previously, the Frank Lampard team beat Swansea City 2:1 in front of their own audience. Derby County have won 60% of their home games this season – six wins in ten games. The Rams have scored 16 goals in their home games and have scored 12 goals in their home for this period. The team relies heavily on the hits of Harry Wilson and Jack Marriott, who scored seven and six goals this season in the Championship.
Nottingham Forest team has won 38% of their matches this season, but it is quite a result – 32 goals scored and 22 scored. In the last round, Nottingham Forest surprisingly lost Preston North End with 0:1 on their own field – this is the only defeat of the team in the last nine rounds. In his last visit, Nottingham made a 5:5 draw against Aston Villa, before hitting Hull City 2-0.
In the last five visits of Forest fell 22 goals – on average over 4 per game. In the last four home games of Derby County, there were always at least three goals scored so I expect a result between these two teams on Monday night.
