Derby chief executive and president Tom Glick believes his club and Nottingham Forest can work together to ensure the fall-out from the east midlands clash at the City Ground is handled in a professional manner.
Both clubs could face disciplinary action from the Football Association following the unsavoury scenes at the end of Forest`s 3-2 Coca-Cola Championship victory on Saturday.
Players and backroom staff from the two clubs clashed after Reds striker Nathan Tyson picked up a corner flag bearing the Forest emblem and waved it in celebration in front of the 4,376 travelling Derby fans in the Bridgford End of the stadium.
The FA are investigating the incident `as a matter of urgency` and Glick is hopeful of a positive outcome.
"(Forest chief executive) Mark Arthur apologised to our manager Nigel Clough and to a number of our directors, so I believe both clubs can work together to make sure the fall-out from this incident is dealt with in a professional manner," said Glick.
"As it stands, we have had no formal contact from the FA in regard to the incidents that occurred at full-time."
