Pardew: Palace won by skin of our teeth
- From the section Football
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says his side's 2-1 win over Aston Villa came "by the skin of our teeth".
Palace went ahead through Scott Dann's powerful header but were pegged back by a Pape Souare own goal, before debutant Bakary Sako won the game with a dramatic late strike.
This result means Palace have won two of their first three matches of the season.
