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.

Clinton Salvages a Point

When you go behind three minutes from time you don’t expect to get something from the game. Thankfully though Clinton Morrison’s equaliser – his 99th goal for Palace – managed to get us a 2-2 draw against Leicester City today. Stuart Green had previously given us a first-half lead.

I don’t know about anyone else, but after the great result on the opening day of the season I feel somewhat deflated about the season ahead. I was hoping the cup result against Bristol Rovers would be just a blip, but now I’m not sure what this season will bring. Personally I’m looking forward to next week’s televised clash with Ipswich Town to see how we look first-hand.
