Palace player ratings: See what we gave Eagles after Swansea draw

0
0

CRYSTAL Palace secured a good point on the road at Swansea City on Saturday with a gutsy performance, writes our Palace correspondent Mark Ritson.

After the hosts dominated the early stages, the Eagles hit back with Mile Jedinak's penalty

Neil Warnock's men had to defend more than they would have liked in the second half but still had chances on the counter-attack.

Here is what I thought of the players' performances, with marks out of ten. 

Julian Speroni - Made a couple of great saves in the second half. No chance with goal from Wilfried Bony's excellent finish. 7

Joel Ward - First game at right-back for ages. Was given tormented by Montero early on but grew into game. 6

Martin Kelly - Unfamiliar position at left-back at it showed at times. Mistake nearly allowed Wayne Routledge to feed Bony. 5

Brede Hangeland - Did well to clear what he could when the team were under pressure. Bony turned him very well for goal though. 6

Scott Dann - Very organised and commanding. The gaffer Neil Warnock told me he could get an England call in the near future. 7

Mile Jedinak - A tough day for the skipper following tragic news of Aussie cricketer Phillip Hughes. Great penalty to equalise. 7

Joe Ledley - Didn't get booed as much as we thought following Cardiff connections. Was tidy and put himself about well. 6

Yannick Bolasie - When he gets the ball, you expect a piece of magic. Nearly scored a stunner from out wide, hitting the crossbar. 7

Jason Puncheon - Needs a goal soon, with Wilfried Zaha breathing down his neck for a start. Is putting in the work though. 6

Marouane Chamakh - A mixed day for 'Cham'. Won the penalty but walked a tightrope with referee Martin Atkinson. 6

Dwight Gayle - So unfortunate to see him go off injured in first half. Hopefully nothing too serious. 5

Substitutes

James McArthur - Made the difference at a vital point of the match with Swansea well on top. Their rhythm stopped after his introduction. 7

Fraizer Campbell - Showed promise but didn't have any chances really. 6 

Wilfried Zaha - Not really enough time but did do well on a couple of occasions, beating his marker down the right and delivering. 6
