Palace make their point

Crystal Palace claimed a point at Championship leaders West Ham after drawing 0-0.

Palace were good value for their point with Hammers keeper Robert Green denying them the victory by making a string of fine saves.

Darren Ambrose almost gave Palace the perfect start inside the first 30 seconds but he fired his shot from Wilfried Zaha's pass just wide.

A minute later James Tomkins fed George McCartney with a through-ball but his effort sailed off target.

Then Green kept out Chris Martin's drive and a deflected effort from Zaha shortly afterwards. From the resulting corner, Mile Jedinak headed over the bar when unmarked.

Jedinak forced Green into another save before blasting wide before the half-time break.

Carlton Cole came on for the second half and he almost scored with one of his first touches, side-footing inches past the post.

Tomkins and Nicky Maynard had attempts on goal for the Hammers as they looked to get back into the game.

Julian Speroni was called into action to keep out West Ham sub Sam Baldock on two occasions, while Winston Reid and Jack Collison also failed to find the net for the hosts.
