Eagles blow it again

Crystal Palace wasted yet another lead to draw 2-2 in stoppage time at Nottingham Forest.

It's the fourth time in the last five games they had gone in front, only to allow the opposition to draw level.

More dropped points, compounded by Palace's rivals picking up wins, threatens to derail the Eagles hopes of automatic promotion.

Palace have gleaned just one win from the last eight outings and lie nine points off leaders Cardiff City.

It all looked good when Glenn Murray continued his superb scoring form by putting the visitors ahead in the ninth minute, slotting home Dean Moxey's low cross.

But having previously hit the post, Forest were on terms in first half stoppage time thanks to a 25-yard effort from Andy Reid which flew into the bottom corner.

Murray netted his second of the game in the 81st minute, heading Yannick Bolasie's far-post cross over Lee Camp in goal to give Palace hope of a much-needed win.

But in stoppage time, Billy Sharp prodded home the equaliser for 2-2 after Julian Speroni pushed Dexter Blackstock's header onto the post.
