It was a big game for Forest as they looked to claim bragging rights over their arch rivals for the second time this season, with Sabri Lamouchi’s side looking to break into the automatic promotion places.
Have these Forest done these 15 things in the last 10 years?
Derby, meanwhile, had started the season slowly under Phillip Cocu, with the Rams languishing in midtable and winning only five of their opening 15 league matches.
In what was a cagey affair at the City Ground between two bitter rivals, it was Grabban who showed composure to slot the ball under Kelle Roos and score the game’s only goal.
The goal came from a huge Jayden Bogle error, whose backpass was cut out by Grabban, and the experienced forward made no mistake as he netted his seventh goal of the campaign.
Brice Samba has reacted to the club’s video, hailing his teammate’s goalscoring qualities by calling Grabban the “bagsman”.

Grabban has been so important for Forest in their bid for promotion, and this strike against Derby was one of so many crucial goals he’s scored this season.
You can say what you want about Grabban, but there can be no denying that he is a big-game player and he pops up when Forest need him most.
When the chips are down, you need him in and around the area to find space and fire home.
