Palace survive but send Sheff Wed down into League One

Crystal Palace ensured their Championship survival but condemned opponents Sheffield Wednesday to League One football next season after an afternoon of tension ended in a 2-2 draw at Hillsborough. The game finished with Wednesday besieging the Palace goal, but the visiting team held on to clinch the point they needed to seal their survival, reports BBC Sport.

Alan Lee had put Palace in front with a thunderous header but Leon Clarke equalised close to the break.

Wednesday dominated after the interval but Darren Ambrose struck with a composed 16-yard finish before Darren Purse stabbed home at the far post late on to ensure a grandstand finish.
