Dour: City 1-1 Palace

This was a match that started slowly, and never really got beyond that.

City went behind early due to some dreadful defending (again) with City old boy Alan Lee netting for the visitors. City huffed and puffed in the first half but the scintillating events of the Derby and Watford matches were long forgotten.

Eventually an equaliser came through Peter Whittingham after good work from Bothroyd down the flank.

Palace should have been down to 10 men when N'Diaye should have gone for his second bookable offence of the first half, with everyone, but everyone in the stadium expecting referee Mr S Tanner to produce a yellow followed by a red, but he completely bottled it and Palace survived much to the anger of the home fans.

Apart from that not much to report really.

Hopefully Dave Jones can motivate the team to a better performance with Tuesday's visit of Coventry.
