Derby County have received support in their bid to avoid relegation to League One from Nottingham Forest under-23 head coach Andy Reid.

Don’t worry though Forest supporters, Reidy has moved to clear up his post on Twitter last night.

The former Reds player posted after the Rams lost 3-0 to Preston last night that he thought they were in big trouble, but hoped they could survive.

Naturally, that comment took some Forest fans by surprise, forcing Reid into clearing up his sentiments.


In another post he suggested that his comment was merely because he loved playing in the derby-day games.

He also said that with fans due back in the stadium next season, it’d be a shame if Forest against Derby wasn’t on the fixture list.

In a further post on social media he also cleared up that in no way does he feel sorry for the Rams in their current plight.


Are Derby going down?

Last night’s result means that it’s now out of their hands, although Rotherham still have work to do.

If the Millers can win two of their three games in hand, however, the Rams look destined for League One.

Derby still have Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday to play at home and they’ll fancy getting three points out of those games.

Wayne Rooney has overseen four consecutive defeats though and with the injuries stacking up, the situation has become perilous.

It’s fair to say that with Forest practically safe, plenty of Reds supporters will be cheering on Paul Warne’s team from afar.

Reid is a man with the respect of the City Ground. Not too many supporters will share his sentiments regarding Derby, however.
