Palace stretched their unbeaten run in the league to seven games with a well earned point at the Stadium of Light. A solid defensive display was the backbone to the good result, with Gabor Kiraly, Mark Hudson and Carl Fletcher standing out. Sunderland had the better of the first half in terms of possession but it was Palace who had the best opportunity to open the scoring. Stuart Green played a neat one-two with Shefki Kuqi and the winger's shot was tipped over by Ward. The second half saw Palace come in to the game further and looked a more dangerous outfit as the half progressed. But neither team could break the deadlock and had to settle for a point.
