Town’s run ended by resilient Eagles

Keane had seen his players go 10 games unbeaten in the league before Saturday’s trip to Selhurst Park and they took a deserved lead when Jaime Peters took advantage of a goalkeeping error to score on 19 minutes.

But after Jose Fonte scrambled Neil Warnock’s men level on 38 minutes, Jon Stead was unluckily sent-off to leave Keane’s side a man short for 50 minutes.

Neil Danns (58) and Victor Moses (90) took advantage to score second-half goals for Palace and leave Ipswich looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone after a first defeat since October 3.

The result leaves Palace in eighth place in the table, a point from the play-off zone, before the rest of the Boxing Day action.
