Derby v Forest - the bet is on (highest finish)

As some may know, I have the unfortunate luck to have to work in Nottingham. And after a couple of wins, as is always the case the Red dogs are getting excited.

One of them confidently bet me £5 (that's 5 whole pounds, times are hard) that Forest would finish above Derby. Funny thing is, a week ago they had all written this season off.

Oh well, easiest £5 I'll ever make I reckon

They might sneak back above playing Huddersfield tomorrow night, but not for long.

I'm officially putting this down as the easiest money I've ever made but no he's not weighed in with the crisp 5 pound note yet.
