The Palace second-string remain top of the Combination league with a convincing 3-1 home win to Swindon.

David Hunt and Ade Akinbiyi had early opportunites to score but against the run of play it was Swindon who took the lead with a close-range shot from Crosby.

Two minutes later, Palace were level. A throw into the Swindon box was chested down by Akinbiyi and Tariq Nabil turned and fired home.

Akinbiyi forced the keeper into a save and Glen Wilson's follow-up was parried before Palace got a second goal.

Akinbiyi rifled a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box in the 38th minute. There was time for trialist Oliver Risser to head wide as Palace went into the break.

Kolinko was called into action a couple of times in the second period, while down the other end Nabil and Akinbiyi went close.

Substitute Charlie Taylor got goal number three in the 73rd minute, getting on the end of Wayne Routledge's right wing cross.

Palace: Kolinko, Routledge, Simpson, Wilson, Hunt, Borrowdale, R Smith (Watson 52), Thomson (Heeroo 46), Akinbiyi (Taylor 58), Nabil, Risser.

Sub not used: Winothai.
