Nottingham Forest trio doubtful for Derby clash as Kamil Grosicki saga continues

Nottingham Forest trio Joe Worrall, Fouad Bachirou and Tyler Blackett are all doubtful for the visit of arch-rivals Derby on Friday.

Worrall and Bachirou have been out since September, while Blackett has missed both of new manager Chris Hughton’s two matches in charge.

Forest are still awaiting confirmation of whether their loan deal for West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki has gone through, almost a week after the deadline, as a paperwork wrangle rumbles on.

Anthony Knockaert, another loan signing whose deal did go through, will be hoping to make the squad having not featured in the two games since his arrival.

Under-pressure Derby boss Phillip Cocu looks set to start Tom Lawrence again despite admitting he does not yet know whether the forward can manage 90 minutes.

Lawrence missed three months with a shoulder injury but has built up his fitness with 30 minutes and an hour in the last two matches, with his first start since July coming in the midweek defeat to Huddersfield.

Player-coach Wayne Rooney continues his self-isolation after his contact with a Covid-positive individual.

Midfielder Louie Sibley is fit again after a hamstring injury which has sidelined him for a month and he will go straight into the squad, while new signing Jordon Ibe – who has not played in 13 months – and Krystian Bielik, out since January with a knee injury, are set to play for the Under-23s on Friday lunchtime as they build up their fitness.

    Nottingham Forest 1 - 1 Derby County - Match Report

    Lyle Taylor leveller rescues point for Nottingham Forest in duel with Derby

    Lyle Taylor rescued a point for Nottingham Forest with his first goal for the club in a 1-1 draw with Derby at the City Ground.

    Taylor poked home from close range in the 64th minute to cancel out Martyn Waghorn’s brilliant first-half opener.

    The Rams had enjoyed the better of the first-half chances and deservedly went ahead when Waghorn scored with a 25-yard free-kick on the half-hour mark.

    But Graeme Shinnie missed a brilliant chance to make it 2-0 seven minutes later when Brice Samba denied him during a one-on-one.

    And Taylor made him pay for the miss when he equalised following a goalmouth scramble from a 64th-minute corner.

    Derby thought they had won it late on when Kamil Jozwiak had a goal ruled out for offside.

    The point lifts Derby out of the early relegation zone and leaves Forest still looking for a first home win of the campaign.

    David Marshall beat away a powerful Taylor shot after Cyrus Christie picked him out on three minutes.

    Referee Tony Harrington waved away strong shouts for a penalty on eight minutes after Tom Lawrence went down under a challenge from Ryan Yates.

    Sammy Ameobi fired a long-range effort straight at Marshall in the 16th minute.

    Curtis Davies failed to find the target with a header in the 23rd minute after Lawrence’s cross had too much pace on it.

    Yates weakly headed wide from Ameobi’s cross minutes later when he had time to pick his spot.

    Samba saved a powerful Shinnie’s shot from the edge of the box in the 27th minute.

    Waghorn put the Rams ahead with a superb 25-yard free-kick that went in off the crossbar on the half hour.

    Shinnie should have doubled the lead when he shot straight at the keeper after Nathan Bryne played him in seven minutes later.

    Yates headed straight at Marshall from Nicolas Ioannou’s cross on the stroke of half-time as Forest continued to struggle for ideas.

    Ameobi had two shots charged down just after the restart as Forest looked to create pressure.

    Lawrence had a long range shot deflected behind, before Waghorn headed wide from the resulting corner in the 54th minute.

    Marshall turned an Anthony Knockaert cross behind as Ameobi prepared to pounce, but Forest levelled from the resulting corner when Taylor slotted home from inside the six-yard box.

    Taylor headed wide from an Ioannou cross in the 68th minute, before Taylor and Lolley were unable to get on the end of a Christie cross seconds later.

    Jozwiak had a goal ruled out by the linesman after Waghorn strayed into an offside position with 13 minutes left.

    Buchanan had a shot deflected behind with five minutes to go as County pushed for a late winner.
