  1. Goodbye

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Right that's it from me. Thanks for joining me this afternoon.

    You can follow all the Premier League reaction here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    And that is that. The jinx of Roy Hodgson strikes again.

  3. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Last chance for a goal here. In comes a Cardiff free-kick but Bruno Ecuele Manga blazes over. That could have been a glorious smash and grab.

    Crikey what a finish.

  4. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Time running out for a winner.

  5. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Brilliant tackle from Cardiff defender Bruno Ecuele Manga. Wilfried Zaha was away and about to pull the trigger.

  6. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Another Crystal Palace chance. This time Patrick van Aanholt's shot is held by Neil Etheridge.

  7. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Now Crystal Palace's Wilfired Zaha goes close with a fizzing drive. Great save from Neil Etheridge.

    Palace have had 25 shots. Just two on target.

    Wilfred Zaha
  8. GREAT SAVE!

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Almost smash and grab time. Cardiff's Kadeem Harris reacts first to a half cleared ball from Mamadou Sakho but Vicente Guaita brilliantly blocks from about 8 yards.

  9. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    So close. But no again no cigar. Luka Milivojevic's has a free-kick for Palace 20 yards out. He executes it wonderfully well but the ball cannons back of the post.

  10. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    After those earlier missed Crystal Palace chances...dare I suggest Cardiff are starting to look comfortable now....

  11. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Is that a little rash from Cardiff's Junior Hoilett on Wilfried Zaha? Not really.

    Zaha isn't happy but it looked nothing more than a coming together. Hoilett is on a yellow card though so needs to be careful.

  12. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    It's just not happening for Crystal Palace.

    Connor Wickham is the latest player to go close, smashing wide from close range.

  13. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Crystal Palace bang on top here. Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur both going close in the last few moments. Both guilty of getting under the ball though when well placed.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Here comes Connor Wickham for Crystal Palace to replace Max Meyer. It's over two years since he last featured at Selhurst Park after rupturing his cruciate against Swansea City in November 2016.

  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Cardiff's Joe Bennett and Wilfried Zaha are just having a little talking to from referee Lee Probert.

    There was a little bit of pushing and shoving off the ball..but it's all quiet again now with no cards produced.

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Brilliant from Wilfried Zaha. His control takes two Cardiff defenders out of the game before he releases Max Meyer.

    The German can't keep his balance though and fires a left foot shot over from the edge of the Cardiff penalty area, perhaps he was conscious of the looming presence of Sol Bamba.

  17. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Where is Crystal Palace's Jeffrey Schluup when you need him.....?

  18. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    How did he miss? Just hit the target man.

    Sean Morrison's mis-kick presents a golden chance for Palace midfielder Cheik Kouyate. He's six yards out but he blazes the ball well over the bar.

    No idea how he did that. Big, big chance. Optimism level slowly falling.

  19. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    Roy Hodgson's four Boxing Day matches in the Premier League have all ended 0-0.

    Still plenty of time left before my early optimism plummets.

    Roy Hodgson
  20. Post update

    Crystal Palace 0-0 Cardiff City

    That's two shots on target today for Cardiff's Junior Hoilett but this one is tame. No trouble at all for the home keeper Vicente Guaita.

    That was a promising position though with the Crystal Palace defence all at sea. A poor first touch just let the forward down though.
