Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolves
Andy Johnson scored his first goal for almost three months to salvage a point for Crystal Palace against Wolves.

Palace started the better but Wolves went ahead when Seol Ki-Hyeon collected Tom Huddlestone's pass and fired a shot-cum-cross in at the near post.

Johnson drew the hosts level when he gathered a Tom Soares pass and rifled a low shot into the net from eight yards.

Wolves had chances to win, Huddlestone and Mark Kennedy going close before Kenny Miller screwed an effort wide.

  • Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle:
    It's in the top two's hands. We keep drawing games, and even if we had a great run, we would need them to wobble."

    "You saw with Andrew Johnson how important strikers can be.

    "They're worth their weight in gold. They can turn draws into wins - a new striker could push us up the table."

  • Crystal Palace manager Iain Dowie:
    "We need to go on a fantastic run and for Sheffield United and Reading to slip up, but I believe that is possible.

    "We did a similar thing to reach the play-offs in 2004, and the players are very positive.

    "We dominated the game, and not too many sides will do that to Wolves.
