(Sporting Alert) — Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish makes just one change for this afternoon’s East Midlands derby with hosts Derby County at Pride Park.

The change sees skipper Danny Collins coming in as a replacement for Dan Harding, who missed the victory over Peterborough last weekend because of a suspension.

Strikers Billy Sharp and Simon Cox are also starters.

Meanwhile, striker Jamie Ward makes his first start for Derby since picking up a hamstring injury in late December.

He will start alongside Conor Sammon in the attacking line.
