  • Crystal Palace secured their third win in a row thanks to a 1-0 win against Aston Villa to inch their way towards Premier League survival. Jason Puncheon scored the only goal of the game with 16 minutes remaining to hand Villa their fourth straight defeat and keep them in fear of the drop.

  • Ciaran Clark tries to connect with a crossat the back post, but Palace manage to clear their lines.

  • We're into THREE added minutes of stoppage time at Villa Park.

  • Weimann thought he had scored, but the veteran Argentine flung himself across goal to make the save. Villa are piling the pressure on now!

  • WHAT A SAVE! Julian Speroni makes a stunning one-handed save to deny Andreas Weimann from grabbing an equaliser.

  • OFF THE POST! Jason Puncheon breaks the offside trap before taking his time and firing his left-foot shot against Brad Guzan's near post from a tight angle.

  • Paul Lambert knows his side must throw the kitchen sink at Palace, but the visitors counter-attack.

  • Jonathan Parr replaces my man of the match Yannick Bolasie for the final few minutes.

  • Villa are slipping to a fourth straight defeat if the scoreline remains like this. Will those changes help them salvage a point?

  • Andreas Weimann and Marc Albrighton replace Karim El Ahmadi and Ryan Bertrand in a double Villa change.

  • Grant Holt is on the stretch and just fails to get a touch on the ball in the six-yards box.

  • Villa boss Paul Lambert is now contemplating making a few changes with time against his side.

  • The Palace supporters sing 'we are staying up'. They are on course for a third straight win and will also jump above Villa in the table.

  • PALACE TAKE THE LEAD! Yannick Bolasie's cross falls to Jason Puncheon in the box. He turns Ryan Bertrand before lashing his left-foot shot in off the far post for his sixth of the campaign.


  • Glenn Murray comes on for Cameron Jerome who spurned a golden chance to hand his side the lead this afternoon when he struck the underside of the crossbar from three yards out.

  • Jason Puncheon fires his shot high over the crossbar from distance.

  • Grant Holt has gone down off the ball and looks to be in a fair bit of pain. Play continues!

  • Glenn Murray is all set to come on for Palace as they look to secure all three points.
