Crystal Palace suffered their first loss of the pre-season with a 2-1 defeat at Welling United.
Fresh from their training break in Spain, Palace boss Dougie Freedman put out a strong side with trialist right-back Tiago and centre half Yogo given a chance to impress.
Blue Square South side Wings took a shock lead after 52 minutes when Jack Obersteller rifled past Julian Speroni.
Five minutes later, Welling substitute Harry Baker's speculative shot from 25 yards was parried into his own net by Speroni.
Midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi pulled a goal back seconds later with a low effort from the edge of the penalty area as the non-league side ran out winners.
Palace: Speroni, Tiago (Wynter 72), Parsons, Wright (Garvan 45), Yogo, Ramage (Marrow 52), Baxter (Appiah 60), Dikgacoi (Sekajja 72), Murray (Proctor 52), Jedinak (Fenwick 60), Parr (Williams 45).
