Derby fell Forest for bragging rights

Matej Vydra was Derby's hero again as the Championship side beat local rivals Nottingham Forest 2-0 at Pride Park on Sunday.

Czech forward Vydra netted his ninth goal in eight games against Forest and laid on David Nugent's killer second to give Derby victory in the 100th domestic meeting between the east Midlands clubs.

Vydra and Nugent had scored against Forest at the City Ground in March and their quality finishing once again proved decisive.

Forest were stunned after only 24 seconds when Vydra was allowed to run across the face of the penalty area too easily and fire a low shot into the bottom left corner of Jordan Smith's net.

Forest created enough chances to get back on level terms and they wasted another in the 50th minute when Jason Cummings scuffed a shot over from Ben Osborn's pass.

It was a costly miss because Derby surged forward through Vydra and, as Forest stood off him, he played in Nugent who placed a low shot across Smith and inside his right post.
