Rooting for Forest and Foxes

THIS coming week is the biggest for football in the East Midlands in a very long time.
Since Derby limped out of the top flight in 2008 licking its considerable wounds, it’s been possible for football fans to drive the length of the M1 on away days without passing by a Premiership stadium.
But this weekend, both Leicester City and Nottingham Forest could progress to the play-off final.
And fingers crossed, should they overcome Cardiff and Blackpool respectively over two legs, the East Midlands would then be guaranteed a team being promoted alongside Newcastle and West Brom – as well as a ding-dong of a play-off final to decide which.
How long they victor would stay there can be a concern for another season…
