Palace upbeat ahead of Forest clash

A hard-fought local derby with Charlton on Tuesday saw loan striker Craig Beattie net the winner and give Palace a vital three points.

Neil Warnock favours a 4-3-3 formation and defender Paddy McCarthy told the Croydon Advertiser: "I think we've cracked the system now - we know that all 11 of us have to perfrom like we did against Charlton week in week out."
