Crystal Palace 2-1 Sheff Wed
Crystal Palace grabbed a last-gasp win over Sheffield Wednesday thanks to rookie striker Sean Scannell.

Richard Hinds headed Wednesday ahead from six yards when he pounced after Eagles keeper Julian Speroni failed to hold a shot from Frank Simek.

Lee Grant saved from Tom Soares but Clinton Morrison headed Palace level from Mark Hudson's cross.

Palace secured victory when Scannell lobbed the ball over keeper Grant for his first professional goal.

  • Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock on Sean Scannell:
    "Sean is one of a number of youngsters who are doing well here.

    "He is a sensible lad, he keeps his feet on the floor and he took his goal really well, like an old campaigner.

    "He is my type of player. In fact he's the type of player I'm looking to sign in January - so you never know, I might not have to sign anybody."

  • Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws:
    "I feel like we have been robbed in broad daylight. It's a bitter pill to swallow.

    "I'm bitterly disappointed with the result. We were in control and looked more likely to score.

    "We were five matches undefeated away from home and I felt number six was on the cards here. I thought we were the better side and deserved more."
