Crystal Palace ends winless streak at Burnley's expense

Palace finally recorded a home win and goal from open play as they saw off a poor Burnley side 2-0 at Selhurst Park to move clear of the bottom three.

Crystal Palace's Andros Townsend (centre) celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game with team-mates during the Premier League match at Selhurst Park, London.

Roy Hodgson admitted he feared Crystal Palace's missed chances against Burnley would come back to haunt his side.

The home side dominated from start-to-finish.

Tom Brady jokes about retirement after reaching 1,000 rushing yards
It played shortly after his five-yard scramble to earn a first down in the first quarter. "What's up? Nine and three". He joked by saying this is what he wanted to do for a long time and now he can ride off into the sunset and retire.

James McArthur had given the Eagles the lead but they wasted a host of golden chances to put the game to bed.

The second goal finally arrived as Townsend smashed home a lovely left foot shot to put Palace 2-0 up with their 27th attempt of the game.

"Maybe we've been guilty of not putting the chances away, which was the story today, but thankfully we did get two to get us over the line and get three points". I think we've had a spell when some of our performances weren't good enough but we're coming out of that.

The woodwork came to Burnley's rescue when Zaha unleashed a dipping shot from the edge of the box, but Townsend had no such bad luck when he curled an exquisite effort into the top-left corner to make sure of the points from a one-sided affair. "I expect him to produce that level of shot".

While Hodgson will hope the victory provides a turning point in Palace's season, Burnley, who finished seventh last term, appear a team devoid of confidence and facing up to the prospect of a relegation scrap.

And Dyche acknowledged that, although he can not question his side's effort, Burnley lack cohesion and focus to their play, and used a boxing analogy to describe the Clarets' troubles. When you do that, it is like being a good boxer, it happens and you need to work out how to get it back.

"It might be a case of two steps forward, and one step back, but we have to keep building and get back to having that eye of the tiger".

"We went beyond that last season, and maybe that will have a positive effect in the psyche of both the players and the fans".

"Usually you do that by getting back in the gym, and working hard, so that is what we are going to have to do".
