Forest into relegation zone. Division 1 review

Last updated : 28 January 2004 By Michael Morris
Derby County beat Sheff Utd last night to pick up 3 points and a second consecutive home win. The points have taken them above local rivals Nottingham Forest. Of course Forest visit Ninian Park this Saturday.

One of the shocks of the season so far has been the demise of Forest, no one could have expected they would be in the relegation zone before January was out.

Forest come to Ninian Park without a win in the last 12 league games. They have lost the last 5 league games in a row. I'd hate to see such a "big" club get relegated but I hope their fightback starts after Saturdays game.

Derby County are City's next opponents, after Forest, a week Saturday at Pride Park.

Sheffield Utd missed the chance to go second.
