Crystal Palace reserves beat their Leicester City counterparts 2-0 in the Premiership Reserve League South.

The Foxes started well and Julian Speroni made a decent save to palm out Ashley Chambers' scorching shot in the first minute.

Tommy Black wasted a good chance for the Eagles when he found himself one-on-one with keeper Paul Henderson but fired wide.

He later found the back of the net in the 24th minute but had his "goal" ruled out for offside.

New Leicester signing Iain Hume forced Speroni into a top save following a good run into the area. But Palace took the lead on the stroke of half-time as Ryan Hall cut in from the left and slotted into the far corner.

Andy King went close for the home side, Henderson saved a Wayne Andrews effort and Chambers tested Speroni with a decent strike.

But Palace made the game safe with a quality solo goal from Tyrone Berry in the 88th minute.
