Crystal Palace   0 - 1   Bristol City

Crystal Palace 0-1 Bristol City

Crystal Palace 0-1 Bristol City

Chris Iwelumo's moment of magic proved the difference between the two sides as Bristol City saw off fellow strugglers Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The on-loan Wolves striker struck a stunning volley on the turn from inside the area 17 minutes from time to settle a dour encounter.

Jamal Campbell-Ryce came close to a second but an out-of-sorts Palace could not muster a response at the other end.

The defeat leaves Palace outside the drop zone on goal difference alone.


Crystal Palace boss Paul Hart:
"I said to them in the dressing room, 'This is us, there's no more coming in and there is no-one going so it is me and you and that's it'.

"I said we have got seven weeks and there's three that go down, so if you finish fourth bottom you have achieved.

"When you get a points deduction like we have it is a kick in the nether regions."

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson:

"It's not just the bouncing back that's delighted me. It's the nature of the performance as well.

"We felt we had to win all our battles over the field and then try and play our football and the tactic worked very well for us on the day.

"Our club is not bad at coming back from adversity."
