A quick rematch with Crystal Palace

Midweek games in the Championship are the reverse fixtures from the weekend of October 4th when Palace won 2-0 at the City Ground.

"I feel sorry for Forest, their fans and manager Colin Calderwood because they need something to drop for them at the moment and it's not happening," said visiting manager Neil Warnock at the time.

"But I thought the players were superb - and so too were the fans.

"In some ways it was our poorest away performance of the season because we could easily have won the others as well, but you could say we were quite professional about it."
