Swansea - Swansea was held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday after Mile Jedinak equalised with a first-half penalty for the visitors.

Australia captain Jedinak paid his own tribute to his countryman Phillip Hughes, the cricketer who died on Thursday after being hit by a ball while batting, before kickoff when a bat had been laid on the field in honour of the 25-year-old.

Swansea started well with Wilfried Bony's sixth goal of the season giving them a 15th-minute lead but Palace displayed the character and resolve which earned them a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in their previous fixture.

Palace equalized after 25 minutes when Marouane Chamakh fell under minimal contact from Jonjo Shelvey and Jedinak scored for the second consecutive game to earn the visitors a point.
