Palace knock out Lions

January 8 2022

Millwall 1-2 Palace

Millwall 1-2 Palace

Crystal Palace progressed into the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 2-1 win at local rivals Millwall.

Patrick Vieira fielded a strong side despite missing Wilfried Zaha, Cheikhou Kouyate and Jordan Ayew, who were on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Palace went behind after 17 minutes after a howler by keeper Jack Butland who dallied with a back pass and kicked the ball straight to Benik Afobe who scored into an empty net.

Michael Olise got Palace level just seconds after the restart with a fine curling strike in off the post.

And the 8m summer signing from Reading crossed for on-loan striker Jean-Philippe Mateta to head home what proved to be the winner in the 58th minute.

Palace: Butland, Ward, Guehi, Andersen, Mitchell, Hughes (Milivojevic 81), Schlupp (Riedewald 88), Gallagher, Eze (Benteke, 64), Olise (Clyne 88), Mateta (Edouard 64).

Not used: Matthews, Kelly, Wells-Morrison, Rak-Sakyi.

Millwall: Long, McNamara, Hutchinson, Cooper, Bradshaw (Smith, 81), Malone, Ojo (Boateng 81), Pearce (Bennett 62), Saville (Kieftenbeld 50), Afobe (Burey 81), Mitchell.

Not used: Bialkowski, Evans, Lovelace, Topalloj.
