Eagles crash land

October 17 2006

Crystal Palace were booed off the pitch after a 2-0 home defeat to West Brom.

Zoltan Gera and Diomansy Kamara netted either side of the break to inflict Palace's fourth home defeat of the season.

The visitors could have gone into a 27th minute lead had Ben Watson not cleared Kamara's header from a corner off the line.

Five minutes later, Shefki Kuqi somehow missed a sitter from six yards from Mark Kennedy's free-kick.

Chris Perry, Nathan Ellington and Paul Robinson wasted good chances for the Baggies before Gera broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time.

The Hungarian got on the end of Ellington's right side cross to nod past Gabor Kiraly.

Dougie Freedman came on for Mark Hudson in the second half as Palace switched to 4-3-3. But in the 48th minute, West Brom doubled their lead.

Jason Koumas picked out Kamara who was in acres of space and he swept the ball into the botTOM corner.

Kiraly blocked from Ellington and Kamara, while the Eagles struggled to create many openings. And in the last minute, Jamie Scowcroft saw his shot hit the post to sum up Palace's night.

Palace: Kiraly, Ward, Hudson (Freedman 46), Cort, Borrowdale, Watson, Kennedy, Fletcher (Green 68), SOARES, Scowcroft, Kuqi (Morrison 68).

Not Used: Speroni, Granville.
