31
Palace coming back into it now. Dikgacoi looking for Zaha but it's over hit.

29
Zaha wins a corner for Palace. It will have to be better than the last one. Williams delivers and it breaks to Zaha who tries a trick in the area. Brighton clear.

28
Palace still managing to keep it tight. Williams this time the latest player to give it away though.

27
Both managers really working hard. Shouting instructions all the time.

25
Zaha is crowded out when it looked like he should have passed. Orlandi side foots his effort straight at Speroni at the other end.

14
Zaha then tries to run the ball up the pitch and dives. No foul, play on.

13
Brighton corner though taken by Lopez which is cleared. Zaha loses concentration and Buckley fires at goal. Speroni is equal to it and saves. What was Zaha thinking?

12
More Brighton possession on halfway. Palace look comfortable at the moment despite Brighton having the ball.

10
Another Brighton throw as they look to push Palace further back. Poyet asking for calm from his players in his technical area.

Brighton on top now Orlandi enjoying plenty of the ball. Calderon down the other flank looking dangerous too.

7
Buckley hits a long ball to Orlandi but Palace sense the danger and clear well.

6
Speroni down injured at the moment but he looks like he will be ok. Ulloa caught him.
