Wilfried Zaha netted for a third successive match against Wolverhampton Wanderers as Crystal Palace moved up to 10th spot with a 2-1 comeback win at Selhurst Park.
Wolves took the lead on 31 minutes when Adama Traore headed home from debutant Hugo Bueno’s cross. It was Traore’s first Premier League goal since 15 January.
Ruben Neves’ sublime free-kick hit the upright on the stroke of half-time for Wolves, but Palace were level two minutes after the interval through Eberechi Eze.
Zaha completed the turnaround with 20 minutes remaining, taking a touch to give himself some space before slotting a low finish beyond Jose Sa.
Palace now have 13 points, four clear of Wolves in 17th.
Forest move off bottom spot
Nottingham Forest moved off the foot of the table with only their second away point of the season in a battling 0-0 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion.
Leandro Trossard hit the woodwork with the best chance from Brighton’s 19 shots on goal.
The Seagulls remain seventh with 15 points while Forest have six points, one place and a point clear of Leicester City, who play Leeds United on Thursday.
