Nottingham Forest fans have taken to mocking Richard Keogh on Twitter, after the Derby County captain accused some Reds players of diving during Sunday's East Midlands derby.

The pair played out a 0-0 draw at the City Ground, which Derby ended with 10 men after their Nottingham born midfielder, Tom Huddlestone, was sent off for two bookable offences nine minutes from time.

Afterwards, Keogh criticised the decision to show Huddlestone a second yellow card, and accused Forest's players of 'going down quite easily all game'.

It's fair to say that a number of Nottingham Forest supporters think the Derby defender's comments were a little bit rich coming from him.

The result extended Derby's winless run to seven matches - although they have only lost one of those - and saw them lose further ground on the automatic spots, which could explain Keogh's frustration.

Gary Rowett's side do, however, have a four point cushion over seventh-placed Bristol City and are 10 positions and 17 points better off than Forest.
