Team news: Jamie Ward and Craig Bryson start for Derby County against rivals Nottingham Forest
JAMIE Ward and Craig Bryson have both been named in the Derby County starting line-up to face arch rivals Nottingham Forest at Pride Park Stadium today (1pm).
Ward makes his first start since the end of September, when he suffered a torn hamstring - coincidentally against Forest at the City Ground.
Bryson, meanwhile, returns to the side after missing the past four games due to a knee injury.
The changes mean that Ben Davies and Kieron Freeman drop to the bench.
