Four of Forsyth’s former teamates are set to come on late in the game to make the occasion that bit more special.

Midfielders Craig Bryson and Bradley Johnson will be appearing in the game with strikers Martyn Waghorn and David Nugent are also set to join.

Craig Bryson is somewhat of a legend in many Rams fans’ minds. The 36-year-old Scotsman made over 270 appearances for Derby scoring 42 goals along the way. He’s now retired from the game after short spells at Aberdeen, St Johnstone and Stenhousemuir.

Bradley Johnson recent returned to Pride Park as a player coach in Derby’s Academy, more on that story can be found here.

33 year old Martyn Waghorn returns to Pride Park still looking for his next club. The striker made 123 appearances for the Rams scoring 30 goals. Could a return to Pride Park earn him a chance to sign a new deal?

Finally, journeyman David Nugent, who scored 17 goals in over 90 appearances for the Rams. The 38-year-old retired from professional football in 2021.
