The reserves snatched a last-ditch point, drawing 1-1 at home to Bristol City at Beckenham.

Ben Watson's goal in stoppage time kept Palace top of the Avon Insurance Combination.

It was him who gave Steve Kember's men their first shot on goal in the 25th minute which was turned round the post by the keeper.

A few minutes later, Wayne Routledge headed Tyrone Berry's cross wide while down the other end Leroy Lita struck a shot over the bar.

He later hit the ball straight at Lance Cronin. Watson then saw his effort from Berry's cross go into the keeper's arms.

City broke the deadlock in the 65th minute when Lita got on the end of a longball and he fired home into the bottom left corner.

In the 88th minute, Watson just missed Routledge's cross by an inch for a late equaliser.

But he made ammends in the seond minute of stoppage time when he netted Routledge's centre from the right.

Palace: Cronin, Berry (R.Smith), Simpson (Gibson), Antwi, Hunt, Granville, Watson, Heeroo, Bashkal (Wilson), Nabil, Routledge.
