  • There's full time, and Palace have cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win over fellow relegation battlers Cardiff. Jerome, Chamakh and Bannan were amongst the stars for the home side, but, in truth, it was a great team performance.

  • Puncheon has been great for Palace too, and jinxes his way into the box before smashing a delivery across goal. Turner just manages to clear it for a corner rather than hit it into his own goal.

  • Huge applause for Bannan as he comes off for Stuart O'Keefe.

  • Brilliant from Bannan, finding Jerome unmarked but he should do so much better.

  • Odemwingie slips in Cornelius with the angle unforgiving. Credit to him for getting the shot away, but it's wide.

  • Another outswinging corner from Bannan finds Delaney, but the header is over.

  • That's a huge decision there. From the resulting corner Dikgacoi and Jerome combine to head towards goal, but Marshall pulls off an excellent save to keep the ball out. Goal not given, and it looks a great decision.

  • Jerome finds a way into the Cardiff area, but his shot is blocked and out for a corner.

  • Campbell has put in a shift today but to no avail, and on comes big summer signing Andreas Cornelius.

  • Huge chance for the sub! He should bury his header from just six yards, but he doesn't get enough on it.

  • Peter Odemwingie takes to the field, replacing Kim.

  • GOAL! Huge goal for Palace, and the relegation battle! Bannan's cross looks for Jerome but it's headed clear. Only as far as Chamakh however, and he dispatches the effort comfortably home!

  • Jerome cuts inside and unleashes a powerful low drive. It's deflected, making Marshall's save even more impressive.

  • Bannan opts to flick the ball into the box, and Chamakh gets on the end of it but it's an awkward header to adjust to.

  • Puncheon wins a free-kick from Mutch, with Jedinak and Bannan standing over the ball from around 25 yards out.

  • Noone looks to pick out Mutch with an inswinging delivery, but it's just a touch too far.

  • Cardiff start fairly brightly, and a Whittingham corner nearly finds Campbell but Speroni is out quickly to catch.

  • Puncheon tries his luck from range, but it's harmlessly wide.

  • We're out for the second half then, and Don Cowie has been replaced by Craig Noone for Cardiff. Palace kick us off.
