18/09/12 League Nottm Forest (h) 1-1 draw
The next team to visit Selhurst Park is one that has had recent success in South London. But Palace were in fine form and had high hopes for this game. After a great first half it was once again Kagisho Dikgacoi who gave Palace the lead soon after the second half kicked off when he headed in Owen Garvan’s corner. The visitors then went down to ten men when Adlene Guedioura was then sent off for kicking out at Mile Jedinak.Yes, he chose to kick the Jedi and paid for it. Unfortunately the ten men effected Palace more than Forest and it was Dexter Blackstock who popped up to score the equaliser with nine minutes remaining prodding the ball under Speroni. Palace had numerous chances in this game, Glenn Murray headed Wilfried Zaha’s right-wing cross onto the post after just nine minutes and Joniesta tested Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp with a strike from 20 yards before Zaha fired over.
View from TheEaglesBeak; Perhaps deserved the win but not for the lack of trying. Palace have come a long way in a short time this season. Progress is good, very good.
