Robert Earnshaw and Marcus Tudgay both scored twice back in 2010 to help The Reds thrash East Midlands rivals Derby County at The City Ground.
 
Forest got off to the perfect start on a cold December Wednesday evening Trentside, with Luke Chambers powering home after two minutes. The centre half rose above the Derby defence to put The Reds ahead after a corner from Radi Majewski.
 
After seeing The Rams equalise through Luke Moore, former Derby striker Marcus Tudgay stepped up to score twice to give the home side a two-goal advantage going into the break. First, after good work from Earnshaw, Tudgay smashed a header in off the crossbar and then just before the half-time whistle the striker converted a Nathan Tyson cross from the left-hand side.
 
Tyson again was the provider for another former Derby striker in Robert Earnshaw who slotted home eight minutes after the restart. After a Kris Commons free-kick deflected in past Lee Camp two minutes later, the home side's three-goal cushion was reduced back to two. However, The Reds were comfortable and managed to add a fifth in injury time through Earnshaw again to cap off a fine victory over their local rivals. 
 
The victory ensured The Reds extended their unbeaten run at home to 30 matches.
