First half goals from Wayne Andrews and Emmerson Boyce gave Crystal Palace a 2-0 win over Coventry at Selhurst Park.

Andrews gave The Eagles the perfect start as he netted just a minute into the game.

The former Colchester and Oldham man raced onto Dougie Freedman's through ball before firing into the roof of the net for his first goal of the season.

Palace's early domination continued and Coventry's on-loan keeper Marton Fulop pulled off two very good saves from Clinton Morrison and Freedman.

Coventry eventually found their feet, if not the back of the net - although both Gary McSheffrey and Michael Doyle went close.

Palace grabbed their second just after the half hour mark and it was Boyce who pounced from close-range.

After the break Coventry continued to battle hard, but to no avail as Palace sealed victory with relative ease.

The win takes Iain Dowie's side into the play-off spots - but still some 16 points behind leaders Reading.
