dcfc.co.uk looks ahead to tomorrrday ifow’s East Midlands derby against fierce rivals Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Team News
Rams boss Nigel Clough says Jamie Ward and John Eustace are both pushing for a return to the starting line-up against the Reds on Saturday.
The duo were named as substitutes during Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup Third Round 2-1 defeat to Leicester City, following extended runs in the side.
However, Clough admits that following a midweek break for the pair, both Eustace and Ward are fighting for starting spots at the City Ground this weekend.
He told Rams Player:“Jamie Ward was in no fit state to play at Leicester on Tuesday. 
“Before the game in midweek, John Eustace had played three matches in a week, although we were on the verge to bringing him on prior to the equalising goal.
“But they should both be back in contention.”
Elsewhere, yesterday Clough confirmed that midfielder Paul Coutts has been ruled out of action for several months with a knee injury, after dislocating his kneecap in the defeat at Leicester City.
“It’s a big blow for Paul, first and foremost, he was chomping at the bit to get into the side on a more regular basis, said Clough
“Paul also provided options for us across midfield for us so it’s bitterly disappointing to lose him for quite a while.”
Coutts joins Jeff Hendrick (ankle), Adam Legzdins (ankle), James Bailey (knee), Mark O’Brien and Shaun Barker (both knee) on the sidelines, and Clough says he is keen to strengthen the side in the near future. 
He added: “We had been looking before Paul got injured in certain areas.
“It depends on what is available, are they of the right quality? Is it the right deal? Does the player want to come? There are a lot of considerations to take into account, but we would like to strengthen before Saturday If not after that.”
Nottingham Forest Team News
Manager Billy Davies is likely to make 11 changes to his side again, when the Rams visit the City Ground on Saturday.
The Forest boss changed his entire starting line-up in the 2-1 defeat to Burnley in the Capital One Cup in midweek.
The only current injury doubt for the Reds is Kelvin Wilson, who is fighting a back problem – which Davies says leaves him with only a 40% chance of playing.
We Said
Manager Nigel Clough: “Forest have started strongly, which is to be expected with the players they signed in the summer and they'll be up there this season.
"We've been very mature in our performances against Forest of late. We've risen to the occasion and played well when we've needed to.
"The players are aware of how important Saturday's game is. It's an early kick-off - but the atmosphere will be exactly the same."
They Said
Davies post-Burnley: "We have a depth of squad and we have to give certain players some minutes. That is important. But we came here (Burnley) to win the game.
"We came to compete and I thought we competed well against a Burnley side that is going well. There were some good performances.
"But we will now think about a different type of game on Saturday, we will get ourselves ready for that.
"We will see what happens. We will see what the reaction is from this game.
"We will make our assessment (on team selection) on Thursday and Friday with regards to what is the right way to go about a game against our local rivals."
