Crystal Palace completed the double over 10-man Ipswich Town with a 3-1 win.

Jon Stead was dismissed for the visitors as Jose Fonte, Neil Danns and Victor Moses scored for Palace to inflict Town's first defeat since October 3rd.

Ipswich started the better of the two sides as defender Gareth McAuley nodded a corner over the bar before the Tractor Boys made the breakthrough on 19 minutes.

Julian Speroni failed to deal with a free-kick hurled into the box and when Damien Delaney put the ball back into the danger zone, Speroni dropped the ball to Jaime Peters who volleyed home.

Speroni atoned for his error with a save from Stead but Palace drew themselves level in the 38th minute.

Delaney smacked his clearance into the back of team-mate Owen Garvan and Fonte took advantage of the loose ball to fire into the back of the net.

A minute later, Ipswich went down to 10 men after Stead was shown a straight red card for a late tackle on Freddie Sears.

Garven went close for the visitors after the interval but against the run of play, Palace took the lead on 58. Delaney failed to clear Darren Ambrose's corner and Shaun Derry lofted the ball back in the mixer for Danns to smash the ball in.

Peters and Rosenior both tried their luck from distance for Ipswich but Moses sealed the victory in the third minute of stoppage time with a neat finish from Ambrose's pass.

Palace: Speroni, Clyne, Fonte, Davis, Hill, Ambrose, Danns, Derry, Moses, Sears (Ertl 70), Lee (Andrew 89).

Not Used: Carle, Scannell, Hills, Smith, N'Diaye.

Ipswich: Lee-Barrett, Rosenior, Delaney, McAuley, David Wright, Garvan (Quinn 69), Peters, Colback, Healy (Counago 69), Edwards (Wickham 46), Stead.
