London - Crystal Palace clinched a crucial 2-0 victory over relegation rivals Burnley at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

It was a result that saw Palace end their eight-game winless league run.

Heading into this weekend, Palace had managed two points at home this season, scoring only two home goals, which were both penalties.

Roy Hodgson's team finally ended their drought from open play in bizarre fashion when James McArthur's 16th minute cross was missed by players from both teams, hit the far post and trickled into the net.

Andros Townsend's 77th minute curler ensured Palace would win for the first time since September and condemn third bottom Burnley to a seventh successive league game without a win.
