Crystal Palace moved into the second stage of the European Communities Trophy in Spain, with a 2-1 win over Malmo.

Danny Granville put Palace in front when he headed home a Tommy Black cross in the 15th minute.

Malmo equalised through Skoog on the half hour mark until Steve Kabba put the Eagles back in front five minutes before half-time.

He raced onto a Steve Thomson throughball before slotting past the Malmo keeper.

The Swedish outfit bombarded the Palace goal in search of an equaliser, where they hit the post, but Palace held out for the win in the Real Betis Stadium, Seville.

They will now meet the winners of Real Betis against Etzella (who play later tonight) on Tuesday - kick off 9pm GMT.

Palace: Clark, Fleming, Granville, Frampton (Routledge 80), Popovic, Hopkin (Williams 70), Mullins, Thomson, Black, Kirovski, Kabba.
