  6. Post update

    Palace are huffing and puffing. Not close to blowing the Stoke house down though.

  7. INJURY TIME

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Fourth official Stuart Attwell has conjured up SIX minutes of stoppage time. Where has that come from? Mark Hughes furious. Palace buoyed.

  8. Post update

    Rubbish. Andros Townsend balloons the ball into Row Z.

    Is this Palace's chance? Free-kick about 25 yards out...

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    One last roll of the dice by Sam Allardyce. Can he bring up a six? Loic Remy is the man coming on...

  11. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Time running out for Palace. Stoke enjoying knocking the ball about on the right flank, Glen Johnson and Ibrahim Afellay teasing the away players.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Another change for the Potters. On comes Mame Biram Diouf for Ramadan Sobhi. Decent shift by the young Egyptian.

  13. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Lashing it down in Stoke now. Miserable weather. Sparky won't care if his team get the three points.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Some fresh legs in the Stoke engine room. Charlie Adam, who has been busy throughout, is replaced by Ibrahim Afellay.

    Big Sam is chomping down on his chewing gum even harder than usual. That's when you know he is feeling the pressure.

    Palace need inspiration. They need it pronto. Yohan Cabaye is the next man summoned from the bench, replacing Jason Puncheon. Into the final 15...

  17. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    A bit of belief about Palace now. Stoke looking relatively comfortable though.

  18. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    The set-piece is only partially cleared by Stoke - giving Palace another opportunity. Andros Townsend swings the ball back in from the right, Jeff Schlupp flicking it on to James Tomkins. The centre-back's eyes light up, he swings a wild left boot at it and the ball flies high and wide.

  19. Post update

    Stoke 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Jeff Schlupp's arrival has given Palace some impetus. Corner...

  20. 'Really good football'

    Former Arsenal defender on Final Score

    What a cultured finish from Joe Allen. He's slotted that right in the corner - really good football. 

    That's a disaster for Palace, who need to be matching Middlesbrough's result as a minimum.
