The match between Derby County and Nottingham Forest is the end of the 22nd round of the Championship. The Rams are on a run of two victories in a row, after wins against Wigan and Swansea City. Frank Lampard’s players were dominating in the whole game versus Wigan after Steven Naismith’s red card, but the team couldn’t score more than one goal. Although Derby County create my chances for a goal, the club has just six scored in the last five games, compared to 11 goals in the previous five matches.

Nottingham Forest is three points behind Derby. An eventual win for Nottingham will help the team climb to the positions that will allow them to fight for the Playoffs for promotion in the Premier League. The Reds are in good form, and before the defeat in their last match against Preston, the team was unbeaten in seven consecutive games in the Championship. Away from home Forest are performing good and the team has just one loss this season.

We expect the match on Monday to not be the most exciting game. Both teams will not play attacking football and will try to avoid an eventual defeat. In only one of the previous seven fixtures of Forest were scored over 2.5 goals and Derby’s form suggest a game without many goals. I will back Under 2.5 Goals, with Derby County 3-1 Correct Score.
