Having come off a rather difficult 3-0 loss to Olympiacos the other night, Forest were hoping that a match on home soil would be a little easier.

Things started off well for them as new signing Albert Adomah gave them the lead in a move that involved all men on the new front line, hopefully, a sign of things to come.

Although Crystal Palace managed to make a few changes in the opening period, Nottingham Forest were able to keep them at bay, with Muric seemingly having a much better night at home than he did in Greece on Tuesday and keeping the score at 1-0 as the teams went into the break.

Muric was able to keep that momentum going into the second half as we was called upon time and time again to keep the Premier League side at bay.

There wasn’t a lot of action for the rest of the second half, Forest did come close on a couple of occasions, but wasn’t quite able to take their chances.

In the end Lamouchi’s men had to settle for a 1-0 victory. A nice first result in front of the home crowd for the first time this season, and a marked improvement from the disaster that was Tuesday night in Greece.
