Nottingham Forest are starting to look hard to beat under Aitor Karanka and can pick up another positive result in Sunday’s Championship clash with local rivals Derby.
County’s quest for automatic promotion has stalled due to a run of six games without a win, although they have picked up four draws during that period.
A Look At Nottingham Forest’s Betting Odds
Forest stretched their unbeaten run to five matches when holding out for a goalless draw at Norwich on Tuesday night.
Costel Pantilimon pulled off a couple of fine saves to deny Josh Murphy at Carrow Road, as Karanka’s determined side built on back-to-back wins over QPR and Birmingham.
“I think we could have won, but a draw was about right,” said the Spaniard.
“I told them after the game, we can control a game without the ball and this was one of those games.
“I know it was not the best game to watch but if we can’t score it is important to keep a clean sheet against a good team like Norwich.”
Karanka eventually came in for criticism for being too defensive when Middlesbrough boss, but Forest will be content to keep moving clear of any relegation concerns this term.
Looking at the Nottingham Forest vs Derby odds, 21/4 for a 1-1 draw will do for us.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Derby’s frustrating run of results continued when they conceded a late equaliser in a 1-1 home draw with QPR, after Andreas Weimann had put them ahead seven minutes before half-time.
Rams manager Gary Rowett said: “We looked a little bit nervous. We looked like the situation is just getting to us a tiny bit.
“We got to a point where we could win the game and once again we don’t do our jobs properly.
“Again it’s a sickening blow but it’s one that unfortunately we’ve just got to take on our chin and go again.”
County are still on course to make the play-offs in fifth position but have now let in late goals in three of their last four matches.
