Nottingham Forest will be hoping to build on their morale boosting victory over Tottenham (2-0) in the League Cup in midweek. It means the East Midlands have lost just one of their last five with that defeat coming at Arsenal.

In the Premier League, the Tricky Trees have taken five points from their last four games although they still remain bottom of the table. At the City Ground, they are unbeaten in their last three league games including a victory over Liverpool.

Crystal Palace were also in midweek League Cup action midweek but they were eliminated on penalties by Newcastle. In the league, their last game saw them win 2-1 away at West Ham.

A run of 13 points from their last six matches has moved the Eagles up to tenth in the league. Away from home, they were winless in five before their success at West Ham last weekend.

Nottingham Forest vs Crystal Palace match stats

Although Nottingham Forest are showing improved signs under Steve Cooper this might be a game too far for them. Palace have recent wins over West Ham, Southampton and Wolves and should have too much for their opponents here. The draw is a risk so back the visitors in the draw no bet market.

Eberechi Eze has registered at least one shot on target in six of his last eight games and will fancy his chances here. Forest have improved at the back but still allow a number of shots. Sky Bet have enhanced the Palace man to 2/1 for at least one shot on target and that looks too big.
