Eagles held by 10-man Swans

Crystal Palace could not break down 10-man Swansea City and had to settle for a 0-0 draw.

The Swans bravely hung on with 10 players for 73 minutes after defender Albert Serran was sent off for a foul on Neil Danns.

Swansea fashioned the first chance of the game as Gorka Pintado's long-range shot was pushed onto the post by Julian Speroni.

Then in the 17th minute, Serran took down Danns as the midfielder burst through and referee Anthony Taylor showed him a straight red card.

With a man up, Palace went in search of a goal and had a good chance with a Danns header, then Calvin Andrew nodded Darren Ambrose's free-kick over.

Johanes Ertl tried his luck with a shot before the break and in the second half, Swansea managed to block successive efforts from Ambrose and Victor Moses, with Danns following up with a shot wide.

Substitute Freddie Sears wasted a great opportunity when through on goal when a pass to Ambrose may have been a better option.

Speroni ensured he kept a clean sheet by saving from Andrea Orlandi as the match ended all square at the Liberty Stadium.
