Wilfred Zaha upstages fellow substitute Rolando Aarons to inspire Newcastle to a first win in the season. Palace enjoy a flying start to the match and are in front within the first minute but Darryl Janmatt reacts with his own in the 37th minute with first half ending in a draw. Palace regain the lead three minutes into the second half through Jason Puncheon but Pardew’s side comes back when Aarons heads the ball in the net. Mike Williamson in the 88th minute scores to separate the two sides but it’s not long until minutes into extra time when Zaha restores the game to a draw. Warnock:
I told them to play with a smile. All three wingers worked their socks off and I was really pleased. Zaha looked positive when he came on. People would expect us to defend but we wanted to win the game.
