BBC Sport - Crystal Palace 1-1 Newcastle: John Carver 'brave' to play two strikers

Carver 'brave to play two strikers'

John Carver says he was "brave" to play two strikers as Newcastle United secured a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Palace had the better of the first half and had a headed goal from Campbell ruled out for offside, but Newcastle took the lead with their first shot on target when Papiss Cisse nodded in Daryl Janmaat's cross.

Palace struck back through Campbell to deny the Magpies a second win under new boss Carver.
