Derby County’s much-anticipated clash against arch rivals Nottingham Forest will be shown live on Sky Sports next month.
The Championship clash will kick-off on Friday, October 23 with a 7.45pm kick-off at Pride Park.
It is one of just three Rams games that will be shown live by Sky with Derby’s trip to Norwich also set to be shown on Saturday, October 3 (12.30pm)
And the treble is complete when Derby host Watford on Friday October 16, with a 7.45pm kick-off.
But it will be the clash against the Reds which will be in the thoughts of every Derby fan as they look to gain their first victory over their A52 rivals since a 2-0 win in 2017.
Last season, the two sides met on three occasions with Forest triumphing 3-0 in the League Cup and securing a 1-0 victory at the City Ground.
Sabri Lamouchi’s side were on course to do the double over them in the league when they met at Pride Park in July, but a late goal from Chris Martin salvaged a point for Cocu’s men as the game finished 1-1.
