Loan watch: Derby delight for Liam Trotter

Midfielder features in Nottingham Forest's victory over local rivals Derby County

Liam Trotter tasted derby delight on Friday night as Nottingham Forest beat local rivals Derby County at the City Ground.

Taking the lead in the fifth minute through Nelson Oliveira, Trotter came on as a 70th minute substitute in place of Jonathan Williams to help the Tricky Trees see out the win to claim all three points and local bragging rights.

Elsewhere in the Sky Bet Championship, Rob Hall was an unused substitute as MK Dons lost 2-1 away at high-flying Brighton & Hove Albion.

Meanwhile in the FA Cup, Conor Wilkinson and Oscar Threlkeld both came on as substitutes as their respective loan sides tasted first round exits.

Wilkinson replaced George Maris in the 53rd minute as Barnsley suffered a shock 1-0 defeat away at non-league Altrincham, while Threlkeld came on in place of Craig Tanner after 86 minutes as Plymouth Argyle lost 2-0 at home to Carlisle United.
