Burnley show Palace how to win in style

When your team goes 0-2 up away from home you relax, sing your heart out, and look forward to at least another goal and 3 pts, but when your a Palace fan nothing ever seems to go by the book.

Goal from Shefki Kugi and an own goal from Clarke Carlile put Palace 2-0 up in the first 36 minutes, But Carlisle made amends for his error to pull one back for the Clarets just before the break to make it 1-2.

Second half and Burnley seem to have the more get up and go attitude and took the game to Palace, with the Clartes pressing they were awarded a penalty on the instruction of the linesman for a dubious looking handball by Fonte.
Veteran Alexander dispatched the spot kick to equalise for Burnley,Palace then went into disaster mode when Thompson slotted home from close range after good work from Eagles(Chris) to put Burnley ahead two minutes from time.
Then youngster Jay Rodriguez, after a superb Thompson pass, made absolutely sure of the points in stoppage time to leave Palace deflated.
