Newcastle United were forced to settle for a point against Crystal Palace after conceding the lead at Selhurst Park in their Premier League clash on Sunday.
Mohamed Diame scored the first goal of the game for the Magpies with a first half strike, sneaking round the back post to poke home unmarked from a corner which bounced through a crowded Palace box.
However, despite the best efforts of Karl Darlow, the visitors were unable to keep a clean sheet, with Ciaran Clark’s shirt pull on Christian Benteke giving Luka Milivojevic the chance to score from a penalty, despite the former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper getting a hand to the ball.
The draw leaves Newcastle sitting in 16th, just one point off the relegation zone, while the home side sit two points and two places ahead in 14th.
