JULIAN Speroni was content with taking another point away from home following another goalless draw.
It was Palace's second goalless draw in a row at Aston Villa after the game at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.
Despite the blank from both sides, Speroni was delighted with another clean sheet and called it a "professional performance".
"Every point counts, especially away from home," he said.
"It has been a difficult week. We could have won the game, and also at QPR.
"It was a good performance from the whole team, from the lads who started and those who came on in the second half.
"It was a professional performance. As a goalkeeper you are always pleased with clean sheets and we could have won it.
"Away from home, a point is always good."
