Crystal Palace's reserves crashed to their first defeat of the season with a 3-2 loss against Aldershot.

They went a goal down in the 33rd minute as Jonny Dixon got on the end of a throughball and swept the ball past the onrushing David Wilkinson.

And right on half-time Kirk Hudson converted Joel Grant's headed knock down to give the Conference outfit a 2-0 lead.

Just past the hour mark, Palace pulled a goal back when Jamie Smith's effort was parried by the keeper and sub Sean Scannell tucked the rebound away.

Scannell equalised for the Eagles after latching onto a long ball over the top and scored in the bottom corner.

Aldershot made it 3-2 with nine minutes remaining, as a Shots substitute lobbed Wilkinson to score into the roof of the net.

Palace: Wilkinson, Abnett (Clyne 57), Hills, Bingham (Sweeney 69), Swaibu, Carolan, Cadogan (Scannell 57), Smith, Kudjodji, Sheringham, Hall.

Not used: Thorp, Frayne.
