After a goalless first half at the City Ground, the deadlock was broken as promotion-chasing Forest took the lead shortly after the restart thanks to Lewis Grabban.

Brennan Johnson then doubled their advantage with a second goal in the 88th minute.

But Derby were awarded a lifeline with two minutes remaining when they were awarded a penalty.

Captain Tom Lawrence kept his composure to make a save even though Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba – who had previously been left with a bump on his head after colliding with an opponent – guessed right.

But when the scorer tried to get the ball to restart the action, the player tried to block him from doing so as trouble soon broke out.

The pair became a mess in the net as players from both sides rushed forward and a scuffle ensued.

Both Lawrence and Samba were warned – but that was just the beginning of the trouble.

With just seconds left, former Derby Manchester United and West Ham star Morrison was shown a red card for a late, high tackle on Philip Zinckernagel.

Almost immediately the final whistle blew as Forest assured them they had bragging rights in the Brian Clough derby.

However, even though the game is over, the action is not yet.

Suddenly, a big game broke out on the pitch as both the player and the substitute – and Morrison – entwined as the mood boiled.

Things soon calmed down after heated exchanges, but the English Football Association is likely to open an investigation into these angry scenes.

The result leaves Derby on a safe eight while Forest continue to push through the playoffs.
