Crystal Palace reserves snatched a last-minute 3-3 draw at Millwall.

Clinton Morrison got a 90-minute run-out, along with Dave Martin, but Victor Moses suffered a setback in his return from injury when he had to go off in the first half.

Millwall got their noses in front after six minutes through Gylifi Einarsson, but Billy Bingham levelled the scores just before the break.

Seven minutes into the second period, the Eagles went in front through Lee Hills. Jamie Smith's corner fell to Moses Swaibu on the edge of the area and he set up Hills to fire home.

Millwall equalised through Fola Onibuje shortly after and went 3-2 ahead on 62 minutes when Zak Whitbread headed home Chris Hackett's corner.

But in the last minute, substitute Sean Scannell got on the end of Martin's cross to poke past former Palace keeper Chris Day to secure the draw.

Reserve team boss Kit Symons said: "Clinton stood out because of the way he set-up moves and he played good passing football, but it was a good all-round team effort.

"I said to him before the game whether your at international level or first year scholar, youíve all got to show the right attitude and work your socks off and thatís exactly what Clinton did. All our good passing moves came through him."

Palace: Wilkinson, Clyne, Hills, Bingham (Sweeney 60), Adelakun, Moses (Robinson 28) Smith, Sheringham (Scannell 81) Morrison, Martin.
