PHOTOS: Nottingham Forest fans wear Zamora masks during Derby clash

Derby County Huddle

The Forest fans welcomed their rivals with masks of the Queens Park Rangers striker, after his goal denied the Rams promotion last season.

Derby fans may have been the happier of the two sets of supporters at the City Ground on Sunday - but they had to put up with some stick along the way.

Leon Best's late equaliser meant Steve McClaren's side went home with a point after drawing 1-1 with Nottingham Forest, despite Britt Assombalonga's opener and Jake Buxton's red card.

But Rams fans will not have appreciated the banter that greeted them from the home fans. Indeed, throughout the Championship clash, Forest fans wore Bobby Zamora masks in the stands!

Zamora famously scored the goal that took QPR up to the Premier League in last season's play-off final - at Derby County's expense.

And Nottingham Forest supporters decided it was an appropriate time to provide a painful reminder for their Midlands rivals.

As the above picture shows, though, it wasn't just in the stands that Forest taunted Derby fans, as there were pictures of the 33-year-old stuck on road signs all over the A52.

The visitors can perhaps suggest they had the last laugh by denying the hosts a victory, although Stuart Pearce's men remain at the top of the table by a margin of one point.

McClaren's men, meanwhile, are up to 10th, five points behind Forest.
