Nottingham Forest and Derby suffered pre-Christmas knocks

The other East Midlands sides in the hunt for promotion have also suffered pre-Christmas knocks. Derby's recent charge up the table was stopped by Hull on Friday night. They'll be hoping for at least a point at Burnley who have failed to win in five games.

And if Nottingham Forest** are to keep up with the play-off pack they really need something at home to eighth place Leeds.
