Crystal Palace claimed their first league win of the season with a 2-1 triumph at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
Glenn Murray's double helped moved the Eagles off the foot of the Championship table and end Wednesday's unbeaten start.
Palace got off to a cracker, by going in front after just 25 seconds. Wilfried Zaha sent over a long pass to Yannick Bolasie on the left and his cross back across goal was diverted into the net by Murray.
Five minutes after the break, the Owls equalised when Michail Antonio bundled in Miguel Llera's corner at the far post.
Referee Rob Lewis then awarded a Palace penalty after deeming Mark Beevers had brought down Murray in the box. But he changed his mind after the Wednesday players protested to the linesman.
However, Palace didn't let the decision affect them and got a winner seven minutes from time after a great bit of skill and cross on the right from Zaha ended with Murray firing home.
