The opening moments almost provided hysteria for the visiting fans, as Tom Ince met Tommy Smith’s cross only to hit a shot right at Palace backstop Wayne Hennessey.

And up the Town! The newly-promoted side’s first Premier League marker came off Palace’s suspect back line, with Ward getting the final touch of a Mathias Zanka attempt.

The second half saw promise from Palace, and Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossi did very well to stymy a Christian Benteke effort.
