Palace throw it away

Crystal Palace are still waiting for their first league win of the year after conceding a last-minute equaliser to draw 2-2 at Sunderland.

The Eagles have now gone 11 games without a victory in the Premier League despite Connor Wickham grabbing a brace against his old club.

Alan Pardew's side had the better of the first half opportunities with Jordon Mutch firing into the side netting and Scott Dann's header off Yohan Cabaye's corner was expertly pushed over by Vito Mannone.

But Sunderland edged in front nine minutes before the break with a goal due to a large slice of fortune. Jermain Defoe teed up Dame N'Doye 25 yards out and his shot diverted off Dann and past a wrong-footed Wayne Hennessey and into the net.

Palace levelled just past the hour mark when Wickham fired in a powerful shot on the turn inside the area to continue where he left off at West Brom at the weekend.

And the former Black Cat made it 2-1 to Palace with a close-range finish six minutes later for his fifth of the season after Mile Jedinak had nodded on Mutch's corner.

But just as it looked like Palace were heading for a rare league success, Sunderland sub Fabio Borini unleashed a fierce strike from a tight angle on the right side beyond Hennessey to snatch a draw in the final seconds.
