Derby have George Thorne back from suspension, but Craig Forsyth (knee) is sidelined.

What they’ve said ahead of kick-off:

Nottingham Forest boss Dougie Freedman:”There is enough confidence in the dressing room, and from myself, to say it will change.

“Pressure only comes from within. I am desperate to succeed for this club. No one will give me more pressure than I do on my myself.

“When these setbacks do come along, we must take them as a challenge and make sure we overcome them and not run away – and the players are certainly doing that.”

Derby County chairman Mel Morris(on head coach Paul Clement):“If you look at what we are trying to build at Derby, I think Alex Ferguson defined the culture and the philosophy at Manchester United because he had that long-term tenure.

“I am not sure of the background and how much of that came from the club, but he became the way the club operated.

“In a similar way, here Paul has an opportunity to help shape how we run this club and I would like that, providing he has a strong enough hand in doing that with us, that he will help build something he would want to stay with.

“And at the age Paul is at, then why not?”
