Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace: Sutton's predictions

Sutton's predictions against Bionic
[BBC]

Chris Sutton is making predictions for all 380 Premier League matches again this season, against a variety of guests.

For this weekend's games, he takes on Gladiators star Bionic.

Sutton's prediction: 1-0

Nottingham Forest should have beaten Luton in their last game, and the points they dropped there could prove pivotal in their fight to stay up.

This is Forest's first game since the points deduction that saw them fall below the Hatters and drop into the relegation zone but they have been in wretched form recently, and I am not sure what kind of reaction we will see from them here.

Crystal Palace's last game was a draw against Luton too - I was at Selhurst Park to see it, but I still don't know what to expect from them under new boss Oliver Glasner.

Glasner has had a bit of time on the training ground with some of his players in the past couple of weeks so we might see some signs of that here.

I just don't see Forest losing this one, though. The big question is whether they will do enough to win it.

Bionic's prediction: 2-1

The points deduction might rally Forest a bit - they need it to, because their form has not been very good - but their fans will get behind them, which should help.
