New signings Gabor Kiraly and Gonzalo Sorondo made their first starts for the reserves at Spurs, and helped the Eagles take home a deserved point.
Tottenham fielded a decent side that included Simon Davies and Rohan Ricketts, with the Eagles also sending out a typically strong reserve line-up.
However, Palace found themselves 1-0 down at half-time following a Barnard strike in the 45th minute. The Eagles started the second half strongly, and a fine strike from Dougie Freedman in the 65th minute ensured the spoils were shared.
Palace: Kiraly, Watson (Togwell), Borrowdale, Derry, Powell, Sorondo, Kaviedes, Hughes (Black), Soares, Ventola (Freedman), Shipperley,
