Recent respective form guides
Nottingham Forest's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Forest have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.
Crystal Palace's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 14 goals for the Eagles, and 7 goals against.
Nottm. Forest are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 38 points from 35 matches. Crystal Palace's 51 points from 35 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Nothing seems to be going right for the Forest at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Eagles come away with an easy victory. Away win
