            Crystal Palace vs. Nottingham Forest Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Two sides who've managed to swerve the final day of relegation drama meet at Selhurst Park this weekend as Crystal Palace face Nottingham Forest.

            Crystal Palace currently sit 11th in the Premier League with eleven wins, eleven draws and fifteen losses from thirty-seven games.

            The Eagles were having a fairly miserable campaign under Patrick Vieira as they struggled in front of goal for long run of games having also dropped deep into the relegation battle - the consequence of which was Vieira losing his job.

            However, Roy Hodgson made a miraculous return to the club to replace Vieira and completely turned their fortunes around, liberating the attacking talents of Eberechi Eze and Michael Elise and thus securing Palace's status in the league with plenty of games to spare.

            They enter this game in decent form having won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four matches.

            Most recently, Palace played out an entertaining and commendable 2-2 draw away at Fulham.

            Their form at Selhurst Park is very strong having won three and drawn one of their last four games on home soil, so they'll feel confident of coming out on top here.

            Palace cannot finish any higher than 11th but could drop down to 12th if they fail to win here and Chelsea beat Newcastle on the final day. Both would represent a good campaign, and it's been confirmed that Hodgson will stay on with the club another year as a reward for his exploits this season.

            Nottingham Forest currently sit 16th in the Premier League with nine wins, ten draws and eighteen losses from thirty-seven games this season.

            Forest dramatically secured Premier League survival at home to Arsenal last weekend having upset the odds with a 1-0 win over the league title chasers.

            Forest's Premier League future has been very uncertain at points this season with manager Steve Cooper struggling to integrate the excessive number of signings he's been bombarded with this season.

            However, he's managed to mould a successful team over time with form drastically improving of late, and the confirmation of their Premier League status was met with rapturous celebrations at The City Ground last weekend.

            They enter this game in very good form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games, the most recent of which was the aforementioned 1-0 win over Arsenal.

            Forest beat Palace 1-0 when the two sides met in the league back in November, but they've failed to win any of their last nine games away from home - having lost seven of their last eight - so they may end this campaign with defeat.

            For our Crystal Palace vs. Nottingham Forest prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
