    • FT Crystal Palace 3-2 Leicester
    • 90' Leicester are piling on the pressure but it looks like Palace will hang on.
    • 84' GOAL! Claude Davis misses a ball over the top. Steve Howard run free...squares it back...and DJ Campbell at the far post has fired Leicester to within one of Crystal Palace. The striker helped Blackpool earn promotion last season and he has not lost the touch.
    • 75' Julian Speroni has had to make some good saves for Palace to keep their lead at two...Leicester are really pushing.
    • 61' GOAL! Leicester have got one back - Andy King with a header at the back post just moments after Dyer hit the woodwork.
    • 42' Matty Fryatt has just missed a sitter from five yards out....nothing going to plan for the Foxes.
    • 40' GOAL! ANOTHER GOAL FOR PALACE..it's 3-0.Leicester again look good in possession but then as soon as they lose it Palace counter with their direct style. Alan Lee taps in from close range after Zaha's shot was saved.
    • 30' Leicester are playing pretty stuff....maybe a little too pretty though - they remain two down.
    • 26' GOAL! Palace go two up....Leicester give far too much space to Darren Ambrose on the edge of the box and he punishes them.
    • 19' GOAL! Palace take the lead the against the run of play - Wilfred Zaha has fired home the opener after Leicester failed to deal with a long ball over the top.
    • 19' Leicester having the better of this game Lloyd Dyer has had a couple of efforts...but still 0-0.
    • 5' The Palace fans are in good spirits after surviving on the opening day last season. Lively opening to their game with Leicester but no real chances of note.
