Sadly I'm not my usual positive self ahead of this one. I fear we're in for a pasting.

Derby 0-3 Forest

Looking forward to this one. Not a lot between the two sides I dont think. But with it being at Pride Park I think Derby will sneak it.

Their best chance of beating us at home since their one and only triumph under Psycho. We've been very flat bar the Hull game, hopefully we can see a bit more of GR in our play.

Please don't fucking lose Derby.

As I've always said, Forest are going to be in a relegation battle this season as they're a disgrace at the back still.

Scoring after 24 seconds. I mean does it really get any better than that?

Forest had good possession first half but never really looked like scoring. We were better second half, and didn't think the final score was anything but deserved.

Happy days.

Turned out to be a stroll in the end but that wasn't quite the case in the first half, we didn't keep the ball well enough from the moment we took the lead. Forest looked tidy but lacked a bit of backbone, I think the bottom line for them is they just need some better players. Danny Fox at centre half?

Some tough games coming up now so good to get some points on the board, hopefully we can take that second half performance and build on it, not the flat 45 we saw previous.

It turned out to be quite easy in the end. Although, I have to admit we are a poor side nowadays. I think we're average on a good day, which Sunday proved.

As for Forest, I suppose when you place such importance on having possession and more shots on goal then you lose focus on what the game is about. They will certainly be + in the possession stats over the course of the season, but they're almost certainly going to be in the - stats for goal difference. I don't think they will be far away from relegation either, with Warburton gone soon after Christmas. 7 losses in the last 9 games must be worrying, despite the large amount of passes they've made during those games.
