The Eagles gave away a 2-0 lead in their Worthington Cup 2nd round tie to draw 2-2 against Burnley.

Forssell and Black found the net for Palace. Cooke and a late penalty by Payton ensured Burnley a better position for the 2nd leg at Selhurst.

For the fourth time this season Palace missed a penalty. This time it was Fan Zhiyi who missed the spot kick.

The score was 2-1 to Palace at that time. Soon after that Burnley got their penalty which they didn't waste.

A great first half strike by Mikael Forssell and a clever free-kick from Tommy Black just after the break gave Palace a 2-0 lead.

Andy Payton pulled one back for Burnley in the 63rd minute giving his side hope.

New keeper Alex Kolinko made his debut between the sticks for Palace.

Subs not used: Crichton, Lee.

Palace: Kolinko, Austin, Zhiyi, Mullins, McKenzie, Morrison, Black, Forssell (Gray 69), Linighan, Pollock, Harrison.
