Nottingham Forest may show Derby County great respect by playing weaker side in Cup match

Derby County may be given a veiled compliment tonight as Nottingham Forest are said to be playing a under strength side in tonights Capital one Cup game against Burnley.

Former Rams manager Billy Davies may pin his hope of progressing in the Competition by fielding second string players and hold back his best side for the visit of the Rams at the weekend

Davies is well aware progression in the Capital one Cup could mean a plum tie against Premiership opposition but doesn't want to go down to a Derby County side in this fiercly contested East Midlands derby.
