Crystal Palace threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Blackpool and fall into the bottom three.

Nick Carle gave Palace the perfect start with his first goal of the season with just three minutes gone on the clock. Lee Hills' throw-in was not cleared by the home defence and Carle's mis-hit shot found its way home.

Eleven minutes before half-time Carle set up leading scorer Darren Ambrose for the Eagles' second with a neat throughball goal and the midfielder slotted past Matt Gilks.

However two minutes after the interval, Charlie Adam pulled one back for Blackpool after some poor Palace defending.

Matt Lawrence sliced a clearance and Hills' weak header back to Julian Speroni saw Stephen Dobbie nip in and score.

And in the 89th minute, Palace were dealt a killer blow as Ben Burgess netted a dramatic equaliser for Pool. Speroni made three superb saves in stoppage time to deny Blackpool the victory.

Blackpool: Gilks, Coleman, Baptiste, Evatt, Crainey, Adam, Southern, Husband (Burgess 37), Bannan (Taylor-Fletcher 76), Dobbie, Clarke (Ormerod 68).

Not Used: Rachubka, Euell, Edwards, Butler.

Palace: Speroni, Butterfield, Lawrence, Hill, Hills, Ambrose, Danns, Ertl, Derry, Carle (N'Diaye 82), Lee.

Used: Manns, John, Scannell, Andrew, Djilali, Comley.
