No home comfort for Eagles

Julian Speroni made some good saves but again failed to keep a clean sheet

An abject performance by Crystal Palace saw them lose 2-0 at home to struggling Hull City.

Alan Pardew's side suffered their second straight home defeat and some of the players appeared to have their minds on their summer holidays already.

But they should have gone a goal up early on but the usually clinical Glenn Murray shot straight at keeper Steve Harper from four yards after Hull failed to clear a fee-kick.

Shortly after, Hull's Dame N'Doye somehow missed his attempt on goal from six yards after sliding in to Robbie Brady's whipped cross.

Eagles stopper Julian Speroni made good blocks to thwart Sone Aluko's cross before pushing Tom Huddlestone's 20-yard curler out.

Harper saved a high blaster from Zaha, while down the other end, Speroni produced another decent save to deny Jake Livermore.

However, N'Doye gave Hull the lead on 51 minutes after Brady's inital shot was saved by Speroni and the Senegalese player slotted in from close range.

Pardew brought on Yaya Sanogo and debutant Lee Chung-yong to try and give his team some much-needed inspiration.

Sanogo headed the ball into the net but referee Mark Clattenburg ruled it out for a foul on Hull defender Paul McShane.

Hull made sure of the points in stoppage time after Chung-yong gave the ball away on the halfway line to sub replacement Gaston Ramirez who teed up N'Doye to fire home a second goal.
