Both Nottingham Forest and Derby County are playing in the Championship this season.

Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi has taken to social networking site Twitter to post a message which seems to be mocking Derby County.

The Forest chairman has posted a message which shows the difference in the number of league goals the Reds and Derby have scored so far this campaign.

While the Reds have scored 32 goals in 18 Championship matches so far this campaign, the Rams have found the net 16 times (it was 15 when Al-Hasawi posted the tweet).

True, Forest have scored more league goals than Derby so far this season, but it is the Rams who are doing better this season.

Steve McClaren’s side are ninth in the Championship table at the moment with 26 points from 18 matches.

The Rams are just three points behind Huddersfield Town, who are currently sixth in the standings and occupy the final playoff spot.

Forest find themselves 17th in the standings with 22 points from 18 games. Philippe Montanier’s side are only four points above the relegation zone and are in danger of going down to League One at the end of the season.
