Battling Palace knocked out of the Cup

Last updated : 28 August 2009 By Palace Reporter
An entertaining end to end game was won in the 2nd half by City with goals from Shaun Wright-Phillips and Carloz Tevez.

Man City took the tie seriously and fielded a team that included new signing Joleon Lescott, Robinho, Adabayor, Shay Given, Tevez, the list goes on. Quite an incredible line up from City. I wonder if Mark Hughes can manage them into Premier League contenders. He has the parts, can he produce a product.

Palace were excellent value in the first half and were more than a match for City but as the final scoreline shows the visitors did what they had to.

Well done to Palace, a great effort, good TV. Best of luck to Man City in the next round.
