Newcastle 0-1 Crystal Palace: Eagles grind out win

Luka Milivojevic

Crystal Palace eased any worries of relegation with a hard-fought victory over Newcastle at St James' Park.

Eagles skipper Luka Milivojevic scored the decisive goal from the spot after Wilfried Zaha had been felled in the penalty box by DeAndre Yedlin late on.

Both sides had seen goals disallowed in the first half; Salomon Rondon was called offside after bundling home Matt Ritchie's knock down before James Tomkins fired in from a corner only for the flag to be raised due to James McArthur's offside position.

The victory lifts Palace to 12th while the Magpies drop to 15th, though they are still seven points clear of Cardiff who currently occupy the final spot in the relegation zone.
