  1. FT: Cardiff 0 Crystal Palace 3. A Jason Puncheon double helps the Eagles earn a vital three points, and pile more misery on a hapless Cardiff, who were poor all afternoon.

  2. 90

    Four minutes of added time.

  3. 88

    Glorious way to round off a fantastic afternoon. Puncheon runs at the Cardiff backline, and with seemingly little on, curls a wonderful strike past Marshall from 20-yards.

  4. 88

    GOAL!!! Cardiff 0 Crystal Palace 3 (Puncheon 88).

  5. 85

    Header back across goal almost finds Theophile-Catherine, but he fails to connect. Story of their afternoon.

  6. 83

    Glenn Murray is coming on for Palace, replacing the tireless Cameron Jerome.

  7. 81

    Delaney, who has won so many headers this afternoon, nicks the ball off the head of Caulker. Campbell heads wide from the resulting corner.

  8. 79

    A Cardiff goal just doesn't look like coming, Palace are so strong at the back. Speroni has had so very little to do.

  9. 77

    Kenwyne Jones is replaced by Don Cowie, and Parr comes on for the injured Ledley, who had just gone into the book.

  10. 75

    Palace the ones looking more likely to get another goal. Puncheon attacking quickly on the counter every time he gets the ball.

  11. 73

    Crowd getting very disgruntled now. This result could be very damaging for the Bluebirds. Desperate times now for Cardiff.

  12. 71

    Dangerous free-kick is whipped in by Puncheon, Chamakh's header is well saved by Marshall, but local-boy Ledley taps in the loose ball. Muted celebration.

  13. 71

    GOAL!!! Cardiff 0 Crystal Palace 2 (Ledley 71).

  14. 68

    Feisty challenge from Turner on Puncheon, and gets a deserved yellow card for his troubles.

  15. 66

    Kenwyne Jones gets the header in, beats Speroni, but it is cleared in the six-yard box. Long balls into the box seem to be the way to go for the home side.

  16. 65

    Chamakh comes on for Bolasie as Pulis looks for another goal.

  17. 63

    Noone almost has immediate impact, cutting inside to shoot, but his effort is blocked, and just cleared as the loose ball dropped.

  18. 61

    Craig Noone comes on for the very ineffective Wilfried Zaha. Ironic cheers from the home fans as the winger departs.

  19. 59

    Seventh corner for Cardiff comes to nothing. Palace once again break at pace. This time, it breaks down early on.

  20. 57

    Palace look very dangerous on the break. Really need to take advantage of one of these attacks and grab that second.
