Davids is not called The Pitbull for nothing - and wasted no time showing Scunthorpe hero Forte why.
Dutchman Davids, 37, made his Palace league debut - and two-goal ace Forte said: "He took me out after 10 minutes and told me where to go. I thought 'cheers pal'.
"Honestly he's a legend. I remember him on the Nike adverts doing tricks. When I heard he was 37 I thought I'd be able to run him but he's still quick."
