Nottm Forest v Palace

City Ground, Tuesday 7.45pm



Team news

Crystal Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne faces a late fitness test after sitting out Saturday's draw at Blackpool with a groin injury.

Claude Davis serves the second match of his three-game ban, while midfielder Neil Danns is set to start despite a back problem.

Nottingham Forest's James Perch is out with an ankle injury sustained against Peterborough on Saturday. On-loan winger George Boyd returns to the Forest squad after being unable to play against parent club Peterborough.

Captain Paul McKenna (ankle), defenders Julian Bennett (knee) and Joel Lynch (thigh) and forward Garath McCleary (knee) are doubtful of playing.


Roy Hodgson

"We are hopeful we can stay up. No one said it was going to be an easy one but we have to keep hanging in there.

"I thought we played extremely well in the first half [against Blackpool] and once again there were some great defensive displays but unfortunately the goal so early in the second half was hard to swallow for us."

Billy Davies

"We want to go out there and win every single match but Palace will have their own reasons for wanting to win the game. We've got to make sure that we're more determined than other teams."
