Ayew: First goal for the Eagles tonight

Ayew: First goal for the Eagles tonight

Crystal Palace secured three points on their travels with a 2-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Roy Hodgson went with a forward lineup of Jordan Ayew, Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha, and kept Connor Wickham and Max Meyer on the bench.

The first half was a poor affair with little chances falling to either team.

Eagles captain Luka Milivojevic went the closest to scoring when his shot was tipped over Rui Patricio in the Wolves goal.

Wolves almost scored themselves in the 36th minute when a corner was met by the head of Wily Boly, and the ball found it's way to Matt Doherty at the far post, but his effort went over the bar.

It took until the 83rd minute for Palace to break the deadlock.

Patrick van Aanholt's shot on the edge of the box found Ayew just outside the six yard box. The on-loan striker had time to cushion the ball and stroke the ball past Patricio for his first goal for the Eagles.

Wolves almost got an equaliser in stoppage time but Ruben Neves' strike was kept out by Vicente Guaita.

In the last minute of the game Zaha ran into the box and was up ended by Ryan Bennett, and Milivojevic converted the subsequent penalty with emphatic style to make it 2-0 to the Eagles.

The result leaves Palace six points clear of the drop zone.
