Late leveller denies Eagles cup scalp

Crystal Palace were denied a shock FA Cup win over Wolves after conceding a late goal to draw 2-2.

The Eagles had twice taken the lead through Alan Lee, then Darren Ambrose but will have to settle for a replay against the Premier League outfit at Selhurst Park.

Lee gave Palace the perfect start when he headed home Ambrose's corner after just two minutes.

The forward almost got a second goal soon after but his effort on 16 minutes was saved by keeper Wayne Hennessey.

The match was delayed for five minutes while Palace defender Claude Davis received treatment after a clash of heads with Sam Vokes and had to be stretchered off - replaced by Matt Lawrence.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake blasted over for Wolves before they equalised on 37 minutes. Kevin Foley's cross was knocked back by Andrew Surman for David Jones to score past Julian Speroni.

Ambrose fired a free-kick inches wide before the break and four minutes into the second half he was successful with the dead ball to put Palace ahead.

Christophe Berra gave away a free-kick for fouling Lee and Ambrose stepped up to curl the kick into the bottom corner.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthey threw on new signing Geoffrey Mujangi Bia and Kevin Doyle and the Irish striker nodded onto the crossbar with his first touch.

Berra headed over twice as the home team looked to get back into the match and they drew level six minutes from time. Foley sent over a cross to the far post, Ronald Zubar chested down and volleyed past Speroni for 2-2.
