Crystal Palace vs Leicester Post-match

Last updated : 28 September 2014 By Matthew Roche

Crystal Palace welcomed Leicester City this week in the Premier League. Both sides recorded impressive wins last weekend as underdogs. A high tempo encounter saw the Eagles secure a two nil victory over their northern opponents.

Leicester’s Jamie Vardy had the best chance of the first half, with the former Fleetwood Town man narrowly missing a gift of an opportunity from six yards out. It was only the heroics of Julian Speroni and Joel Ward who blocked Vardy's shot to deny the visitors the opener.

Both sides were unable to brake the deadlock in the opening 45 minutes, a half that saw both sides engaged in a dogfight over possession of the ball.

However, the game sparked into life just over five minutes into the second half, when Palace striker Fraizer Campbell opened the scoring as he deflected a header from Scott Dann into the net. Campbell's goal makes it two in two for the Yorkshire man who finished as Cardiff's highest goalscorer last season.

It took the Eagles only a few minutes to double their lead as Palace skipper Mile Jedinak also made it two in two for him helping to secure all three points for the south Londoners.

Palace now find themselves eighth in the league only beneath Manchester United on goal difference. The win means that the Eagles have now taken eight points from Warnock's four league games in charge.
