Newcastle hold on to draw with Eagles

The first opportunity of the match went the way of Newcastle, with Dwight Gayle turning to volley straight at Wayne Hennessey, but moments later, Palace should have taken the lead.

Roy Hodgson's men eventually levelled early in the second half thanks to a Milivojevic spot-kick, as momentum swung the way of the resurgent home side.

Palace, who came close to a victor several times in a frantic final half hour, climbed to 14th on 27 points, three clear of the relegation zone and two ahead of Newcastle in 16th.

Karl Darlow bemoaned a "sloppy" few minutes from himself after Newcastle United were held to a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

Wilfried Zaha was the first to threaten, racing through on goal and overrunning the ball to allow Darlow the chance to smother, before the goalkeeper brilliantly thwarted Christian Benteke in similar circumstances.

They fell behind in the 22nd minute with some bad marking by the Eagles defence as they allowed Kenedy's corner to bounce through a crowd of players and an unmarked Mohamed Diame converted at the far post.

Palace finished the half on top and almost restored parity on the stroke of half-time, as Yohan Cabaye collected Benteke's lay-off and fired right at the grateful Darlow.

The Eagles came out all guns blazing for the second half and were rewarded with a penalty in the 55th minute after Ciaran Clark tugged Benteke's shirt in the box.

Benteke rose highest to head a corner well wide of the left post on 59 minutes, while Cabaye skied a first-time strike from 17 yards out after being teed up by the big striker seven minutes later.

Yohan Cabaye, James McArthur and Zaha blazed over the bar when they should have done better as the hosts turned the screw.
