Nottingham Forest fans on Twitter are far from happy with how the club are dealing with the demand for tickets ahead of the Reds’ Carabao Cup clash with Derby County.
Understandably there are a lot of Forest supporters who want to be in the ground as their side take on their bitter rivals.
In order to decide which fans should be eligible for tickets, the club have prioritised supporters who are attending the match against Birmingham City this weekend.
Season ticket holders get the first dibs on tickets for the Derby match, but after that they will go on sale to any fans headed to the City Ground on Saturday.
This has understandably infuriated a few supporters.
Forest vs Birmingham is a game between two big clubs where a good number of casual fans will be attending.
Some members of the fanbase made a case stating that fans who went to the Fleetwood game should be prioritised as attending that match required a lot more dedication as it was a less meaningful fixture against a smaller outfit.
What a rip off that is. What about the people who endured the Fleetwood game

Daft logic that. Probs should reward the folks that went Fleetwood..

One fan was quite annoyed at the fact members didn’t get priority on this release after he had forked out his own cash to join the club’s membership scheme.
So buying a membership was a waste of time then

Others pointed out that this may just be a ploy to sell more tickets for this weekend’s game.
One way to bleed more money out of us ????

Begging fans to buy tickets for this weekend so they can go Derby match? Pretty simple lad.
