‘Can’t spot a fault’ – Plenty of Derby fans react to team announcement ahead of Nottingham Forest match



Derby County boss Phillip Cocu has named one change to his side ahead of their clash with bitter rivals Nottingham Forest with Max Lowe entering the starting line-up.

The 22-year-old enters the side in place of Scott Malone following his injury against Middlesbrough last time out, but Cocu has otherwise persisted with the same starting line-up that secured a 2-0 win over the Teesside outfit.

Tom Lawrence scored a double for the Rams as they secured their fifth win of the season at Pride Park last weekend, and they will now be aiming to continue in the same vein when they travel to face Forest this afternoon.

The Rams could temporarily move as high as eighth in the Championship table with a victory at the City Ground, but they will need to overcome a Forest side who are currently sitting fifth following a positive start to the season.

Derby revealed their starting line-up via their Twitter account ahead of the match:

Plenty of Derby supporters responded to the announcement with many of them clearly pleased at Cocu’s unchanged line-up, while others gave credit to the Rams boss for naming an attacking side against their rivals.

Here are some of the responses…
