Crystal Palace 1-2 Nottm Forest

Nottingham Forest moved off the foot of the Championship table after they beat Crystal Palace to notch a second win of the season.

Chris Cohen's free-kick from the right swung into the top corner to put the visitors ahead at Selhurst Park.

Shefki Kuqi levelled when he chested down a ball on the edge of the box and drove in a low shot.

But Forest earned the three points when Matt Thornhill slotted in after a goalmouth scramble.

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock:
"Their goals were just comedy. You would probably win 250 on Candid Camera for their second one.

"It's a joke. At this level you shouldn't concede goals like that - that is four goals in our last four games that have been farcical.

"The two at Blackpool on Saturday were a disgrace but that second one against Forest topped it off."

Nottingham Forest boss Colin Calderwood:
"A win on the back of a good performance is a nice reward.

"It was no better a performance than I've seen in five or six other games but we got a goal in a decent period and at 1-1 had the best opportunities.

"We have not had one game this season where we have looked like a side that might go down."
