Derby County will be looking to keep their brilliant run of form going when they host Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Saturday.

It is a huge game for both clubs, with County’s recent run taking them within a point of the play-off places, and Forest themselves up in fourth place after winning their last two league games.

Wayne Rooney led Derby to a 1-0 win at Preston last time out, and he has been massively influential since joining the Rams.

Derby have won their last five league games, and have won nine of their 15 Championship fixtures since Rooney made his debut earlier in the year.
