On any normal afternoon, Derby County fans will be wanting Nottingham Forest to lose against whoever they are facing.
But yesterday, there was a different feel to things, following Derby’s 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers on Friday night.
It was a defeat which saw Derby’s survival hopes take a major blow, with the Rams now sitting in 21st and only four points clear of the relegation zone with Rotherham having three games in hand.
What Derby need is many teams around them, scrapping it out for survival so it isn’t just themselves in trouble. Yesterday, though, Huddersfield put further daylight between themselves and the bottom three with a 2-0 win over Forest.
The win saw Huddersfield climb up to 18th in the Championship, four points clear of Derby ahead of the final four games of the season.
With nerves jangling amongst the Derby camp, fans were quick to point out the fact that their arch rivals couldn’t help them out yesterday, and made a tough weekend even tougher.
Here, we take a look at Derby fans’ reactions to Forest’s defeat…
