PUN­CHEON BLOW PUTS VILLA IN REAL DAN­GER

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

CRYS­TAL Palace leapfrogged As­ton Villa in the ta­ble thanks to Ja­son Pun­cheon’s header to leave their op­po­nents fear­ing for their own safety.

Villa could have gone in front through Ciaran Clark’s header but Cameron Jerome was in the right place at the right time to clear the ball on the line. Jerome then hit the cross­bar at the other end but Pun­cheon struck the de­ci­sive blow with 15 min­utes to go to ease Palace’s wor­ries and in­crease Villa’s own.
