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.

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.
