Crystal Palace move out of drop zone with win at Huddersfield

Despite the snowy conditions, Palace started in red-hot form and early chances fell to James McArthur and Wilfried Zaha before Milivojevic bent a free-kick inches away from the far upright, and even the setback of seeing Jeffrey Schlupp forced off with injury midway through the first half didn't unsettle the Eagles, who indeed found a way in front soon after.

As for David Wagner's men, who failed to register a single shot on target before 80 minutes at home, the Terriers have some serious work to do in order to retain their top-flight status.

It meant Huddersfield had barely a sniff of an equaliser before Andros Townsend won a 68th-minute penalty and captain Luka Milivojevic converted his sixth spot kick of the season.

Benteke was then denied by a great tackle from Christopher Schindler as the Eagles dominated the first half in West Yorkshire.

Wagner sent on forward Elias Kachunga in place of Pritchard for the final 20 minutes, but Palace, by now benefiting from Zaha's ball-carrying, continued to look the more risky side. Huddersfield responded to going behind with Milivojevic superbly cutting out Alex Pritchard when he was about to shoot from eight yards out.

The victory moves them out of the relegation zone and on to 30 points as they go in search of Premier League survival.

Tomkins thought he had a second after the hour when another Palace corner evaded the Huddersfield backline but, when the centre-back drove goalwards at the back post, Mounie was on hand to hack off the line.

Tomkins' 23rd-minute goal came when Milivojevic's corner landed at the feet of the center back, whose initial shot was saved by Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

Palace doubled their lead on 68 minutes, a awful attempt at a slide challenge by Mathias Jorgensen seeing Andros Townsend upended and Mike Dean left with no option but to point to the spot.
