Tom Lawrence to be assessed ahead of Forest clash

Tom Lawrence to be assessed ahead of Forest clash

Derby County failed to secure a positive result against Millwall last time out as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Pride Park, so they’ll have their sights set on bouncing back immediately. 

The Rams will travel to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest later on today in their next Championship fixture. Forest could only secure a point against Preston North End last time out, so they’ll be desperate to go one better by putting on a dominant performance in front of home support.

Frank Lampard faces an anxious wait ahead of kick-off at the City Ground, as according to BBC Sport’s pre-match team news, Tom Lawrence will be assessed after missing the past two games with an ankle injury.

Also, Mason Mount is still out with a hamstring injury, while Scott Carson’s thigh injury means Kelle Roos will remain in goal for the Rams.

THE VERDICT:

Tom Lawrence has been one of the standout performers for the Rams in the current campaign, having produced an impressive six points and one goal up until this point, so they’ll be desperate to have him back.

Of course, heading into today’s game without Carson and Mount will be disappointing, but they should have enough firepower to come away with a positive result.
