Dowie Returns, Snatches a Point

Just when it looked as if we might claim a second win of the season, up popped Leon Best three minutes from time to grab a draw for Coventry. We had earlier taken the lead through Stuart Green.

You just know how much Simon Jordan would have wanted to win this game, and to come so close to winning it but only ending up with a draw won’t have helped his mood. Personally I wouldn’t like to be Peter Taylor right now, because while a win would have eased the pressure on him this will have only turned up the heat on the Selhurst hotseat.

As for Dowie, well, lest said the better. On this occasion a battle between Dowie and Palace ended in stalemate.

The Championship fixtures for the 2007/08 season were released today. Palace highlights include:

First game: @ Southampton, Saturday 11th August.
First home game: Leicester City, Saturday 18th August.
Oops, they’re playing us again (again!): Charlton, Saturday 1st September.
Dowie’s return: Coventry City, Tuesday 18th September.
Final day: Burnley, Sunday 4th May (kick-off 3pm).

All Saturday fixtures are currently set for 3pm kick-offs, midweek games are currently shown as 7.45pm kick-offs.

Burnley on the last day is usually a good omen. Let’s hope that run continues, however unlikely it may currently seem.
