Derby improved its performances, lately, with only two defeats in last nine rounds, but the wins in this period arrived all at home and except Birmingham, against threeof the five bottom table teams and against Leeds they drawn only at 90° minute.
Derby remain quite weak away with 1-3-3 7/14 and the only win arrived against Huddersfield in opening round - and Huddersfield started in horrible way the season- two of the draws - as four on seven goals - against Barnsley and Stoke, at the bottom of table also for home performances.
For this match Malo0ne ( def.11 1g) and Huddlestone ( midf.10 1g) are two important new missings, while Bielik ( midf.12+1) is doubtful but seems he could play as starter.
Forest with more continuity in good performances, only 3-1-2 at home but the opponent seems weaker then latest results seem.
Apart avrious longterm missings hosts only without Sow ( midf.7+2) and Semedo ( midf.5+3 1g), both out for long, anyway, Dawson ( def.9) is in doubt but out since September, too.
