Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson: "We had a lot of chances and were in pole position to win the game. We had done very well to stop the crosses but didn't do well with that one at the end.

"We had chances but didn't take them and you now that at the end, if one team scores it's going to be very difficult to come back into it.

"Andy Carroll beat Martin Kelly in the air, that's what he does, and maybe we could have done better with the knock-down. But the back four was good today.

"I'm sad we couldn't get more from the game, a point was the minimum we deserved. I'm not disappointed with the performance, I'm just sad they didn't get the result their performance deserved."
