Crystal Palace made it four wins out of four over the festive period with a 2-0 win at home to Leicester City.

The match came to life in the 76th minute when Palace were awarded a penalty after Patrick McCarthy handled Jobi McAnuff's shot in the area.

But England striker Andy Johnson saw his spot-kick saved by Rab Douglas.

However seconds later, Dougie Freedman's great run and cross down the right was rammed home by McAnuff.

And four minutes into stoppage time, Johnson made the game safe with his ninth goal of the season.

Mikele Leigertwood won the ball in midfield and played a perfect through-ball to Johnson who made no mistake.

Palace: Kiraly, Hall, Ward, Popovic, Boyce, McAnuff, Watson (Hughes 77), Leigertwood, Soares (Andrews 71), Morrison (Freedman 59), Johnson.

Subs not used: Hudson, Speroni.
