Victor Moses scored a brilliant equaliser to earn Crystal Palace a 1-1 draw at home to Barnsley.

The teenager netted an overhead kick from the edge of the penalty area to level the scores after Daniel Bogdanovic had given Barnsley an early lead.

Darren Ambrose missed a third minute penalty after Moses was bundled over in the box by defender Ryan Shotton, blazing his kick over the bar.

Ten minutes later, Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele made an excellent stop to push Alan Lee's header from an Ambrose corner around the post.

The Tykes went in front on 19 minutes when Anderson De Silva took the ball off Palace defender Nathaniel Clyne down the right and crossed to Bogdanovic who the curled the ball into the bottom corner.

Moses was denied by keeper Steele who blocked a vicious 20 yard drive from the young winger six minutes later.

Moses underlined what a hot prospect he is by grabbing a sensational bicycle kick that rocketed into the top corner in the 51st minute to level.

Palace defender Claude Davis blasted a good chance over, then when Andy Gray had an effort that was easy for goalkeeper Julian Speroni.

Ambrose went close with a free-kick, then he crossed for Clint Hill who saw his header saved by Steele.

Barnsley substitute Adam Hammill tried his luck from range and Speroni saved well from Iceland international Emil Hallfredsson as the match ended all sqare.
