The much-awaited East Midlands derby between Derby County and Nottingham Forest has been moved to accommodate Sky Tv coverage.

Fans were eagerly awaiting the clash at Pride Park on Saturday 15th December, with a 1.00pm kick-off but the game will now take place two days later on Monday 17th December with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The change has not met with universal approval amongst fans, some have booked to travel and stay in Derby for the Saturday game but will now have to re-arrange travel plans, other will miss the game due to work commitments.

The game is usually moved from his usual Saturday 3.00pm kick-off on police advise but the local Derby always attracts huge interest from the media and now with Frank Lampard guiding the Rams the interest is even greater.

The Boxing day away trip game against Sheffield United will also be screened live on Sky Sports at 3.00pm.

Moving into 2019 Derby County again feature on Sky sports being the Friday night game at Elland Road, as the Rams travel to a side that beat them 4-1 earlier in the season at Pride Park. The kick-off will be 7.45pm.
