Front Row L-R – Tom McInnes, Charlie Richards, Len Benbow, Arthur Capes, Billy Spouncer. Forest were photographed before the game wearing Derby's kit, as this gave a better contrast in the black and white photograph
Forest went ahead early after a goal from Capes, but Bloomer scored an equalizer with a header. The turning point was near the midway point. Richards tried to lob from a Mcinnes cross, but Fryer was easily first to it. The custodian, however, dropped the ball at the feet of Capes, who turned it in to the empty net. Forest lost a player with an injury, but McPherson killed off the contest.
