Barnsley 0-0 Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace produced an impressive performance to earn a hard-fought point from at Barnsley.

The Tykes were under pressure for most of the first-half and had keeper Heinz Muller to thank for making saves from Shaun Derry and Clinton Morrison.

Derry had a 25-yard effort tipped over while Muller also dealt brilliantly with Morrisson angled drive.

At the other end, Julian Speroni thwarted Anderson De Silva's long-range shot and Jamal Campbell-Ryce's effort.

  • Barnsley boss Simon Davey:
    "It was a scruffy, horrible game and I think the conditions played a big part but it is another point towards where we want to be.

    "I think that both teams tried their best to pass the ball.

    "We have made our ground a hard place for teams to come to and we are going into our next match with a run of being unbeaten in our last three games."

  • Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock:
    "It's strange, I think six weeks ago we'd have been elated drawing 0-0 with Barnsley. Actually I feel disappointed if I'm honest.

    "In the second half we could have gone on and won it with a little bit more clinical finishing.

    "I think he (Barnsley manager Simon Davey) was quite pleased when the final whistle came."
