Derby County manager Nigel Clough warns his side to be wary of Nottingham Forest's attacking threat ahead of Sunday's East Midlands derby.

Derby County manager Nigel Clough believes that Nottingham Forest have the best attacking options in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest signed Simon Cox and Billy Sharp during the summer and Clough has acknowledged that they will be much better opposition than the side Derby beat 2-1 last season.

Clough told the Nottingham Post: "Forest are a much-changed and better side than 12 months ago. They have brought players in and spent a few quid.

"We are happy with our front players, but in Cox and Sharp, as well as Blackstock, they have as a good as strikeforce as any in this league and possibly in the bottom half of the Premier League."

Derby currently sit 17th in the Championship table.
