Match Preview

Duo return to boost Forest Nottingham Forest will check on captain Paul McKenna and striker Dele Adebola ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace. Midfielder McKenna has missed the last four matches with a groin injury while Adebola has been nursing the knee problem that forced him off in the defeat at Leicester on November 29 - the last time Forest played due to the snow and freezing weather conditions. Aaron Ramsey and Marcus Tudgay will hope to make their full debuts. The pair arrived at the club on loan three weeks ago. Arsenal midfielder Ramsey got a run-out as a second-half substitute against Leicester, while Sheffield Wednesday striker Tudgay was an unused sub at the Walkers Stadium. Both had been hoping to force their way into the starting line-up at Scunthorpe last weekend but the match, like the game against Bristol City the previous week, was postponed. Palace hope to welcome back Darren Ambrose and Alex Marrow. Ambrose has stepped up his training this week after missing the goalless draw against Hull with a leg injury and fellow midfielder Marrow is also close after sitting out the last two matches with an ankle problem. On-loan Hull defender Anthony Gardner returns to the squad as well, having been ineligible to face his parent club. There will be a change in attack after James Vaughan's loan spell from Everton came to an end last week. Calvin Andrew has returned from his loan at Millwall and could start, although Sean Scannell provides another option after making his first appearance of the season as a substitute against Hull following a knee injury.

Match Report

Tudgay inspires invincible Forest Marcus Tudgay grabbed a debut goal as Nottingham Forest once again proved invincible at home as they hammered Crystal Palace 3-0. The Reds were last beaten in the league at the City Ground in September last year, a record stretching back 29 games, and a Crystal Palace side who had lost their previous four road trips never threatened to upset the form book. Centre-half Luke Chambers opened the scoring with a first-half header and Tudgay, making his first appearance since joining on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, grabbed the second moments after the break. Garath McCleary completed the scoring late on as Forest leapt back into the top half of the npower Championship and left the Eagles in the bottom three. The hosts set about Palace from the first whistle and livewire midfielder Lewis McGugan was twice denied by visiting keeper Julian Speroni in the opening stages, the Argentinian parrying his long-range snap-shot before beating out a fierce angled drive. Rob Earnshaw also fired over and had the ball pinched off his toes by Claude Davis as he was about to meet Chris Gunter's cross. Forest thought they had taken the lead after half an hour when Tudgay played in Earnshaw but the Welshman had bundled Speroni, as well as the ball, into the net. However, within two minutes they were ahead when Chambers rose highest to meet McGugan's corner with a firm header for his first goal of the season. With Palace on the ropes, Earnshaw could have immediately doubled the lead when he ran onto Radoslaw Majewski's through-ball but Speroni was quickly out of his goal and blocked the shot. Despite the constant pressure the Eagles held out until half-time, only to press the self-destruct button 35 seconds after the restart. Tudgay was allowed to latch onto a long clearance from Guy Moussi and Speroni found himself in no man's land as the striker lobbed the ball over him and into the net. Forest could have had more but for Speroni, who smothered Earnshaw's effort on the line and pulled off a stunning one-handed save from Chambers' volley. From the resulting corner Chambers planted a header narrowly wide before Speroni came to Palace's rescue again by beating away Paul Anderson's shot. Forest, in cruise control, were able to hand another late run-out to on-loan Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey as he builds up his fitness following his broken leg. A cute backheel from the Welsh youngster almost set up Nathan Tyson but his shot was deflected wide. But the third goal finally came when Tyson teed up his fellow substitute McCleary to fire home six minutes from the end.
