Palace Result

Palace were denied any points by a moment of brilliance from Scott Sinclair s at Home Park, losing 1-0 to Plymouth, but the failure to convert two simple chances in the first half was the real reason for the defeat. The on-loan Chelsea starlet capped a tricky run on the left with a sublime curling effort which went in off the underside of the angle. That was all the home side could muster in a poor second half, which Palace dominated in terms of possession. However, chances were at a premium, despite the Eagles playing with four up front for the remaining 15 minutes. Substitute Kuqi had a header tipped over, but apart from that, McCormick in the Plymouth goal was never seriously tested. In the first half, Watson and Cort both missed easy chances to give the Eagles a healthy first half lead. Palace now need to focus on their home clash with Sheffield Wednesday in two weeks to get their play-off push back on track. Taylor has set a target of at least six wins to claim a place, but now the Eagles have only eight games to achieve this - dream on! Text nicked from EagleEye Live, edited by me.
