All about Discipline this one as mentioned. Form won’t have too much to do with this game. Reckon tackles will be coming in thick and fast. Players like Knockaert, Taylor and Fig need to keep their cool. If Murray isn’t injured I would stick with him up front and maybe Lolley on the left. Feel it may be a 1-1 draw.
Should be a good game. 2 teams in relatively good form. I have a feeling we will be as solid as we have been recently and turn on the style. Going for a 3-1 win and Rooney to at least get a yellow card on the sidelines and samba to take the piss in injury time. COYR
Can't complain too much about the team selection... Obviously only dubious one is Freeman on left but Lolley isn't exactly pulling up trees at the moment. Another one that might split opinion is at the moment I'm actually feeling a lot more comfortable with bong at least back, ribeiro has a lot to prove with in my opinion, especially in regard to his attitude and also I feel a bit more at ease with Murray on the pitch, not sure whether it's to do with his knowledge and positional reading of the game and having played with knockaert but I prefer him starting to Taylor at the moment.
Only Watford and Norwich City (23 points each) have won more Championship points in 2021 than Nottingham Forest (20), with only QPR (4) conceding fewer goals than Forest (5) this calendar year. Nottingham Forest’s Chris Hughton has never won an away league match against Derby County (D2 L2)
