Lee Brown's penalty 10 minutes into the second half, and a second goal deep into stoppage time by substitute Eliot Richards did the trick for the visitors.

Oxford have taken one point from four games over the past fortnight, dealing a severe blow to their play-off aspirations.

"We had the best chances of the game but haven't taken them," Wilder said. "It's just as disappointing as last week when we lost at Southend.

"In a tight first half we had the best chances, and I thought we started the second half really well.

"It's just a bit of quality in and around the final third that is the difference.

"And that's the difference between players staying here and players moving on.

"We dominated that game but I can't keep saying that. It's the big moments we're not getting right."

"My skipper (Jake Wright) has held his hand up for the penalty. He's made a bad decision.

"The second goal at the end was because we had six up front and were trying to get an equaliser."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
