FULL-TIME: Crystal Palace 4, Burnley 3
5:06pm Saturday 6th October 2012 in Sport
MARTIN Paterson ended his goal drought, but Burnley couldn't stop their habit of conceding goals.
The Clarets took a 2-1 lead into the break thanks to Paterson's first since the opening day of the season – a stunning hooked effort – soon after Chris McCann had put the visitors in front in the 26th minute.
Wilfried Zaha pulled one back for Crystal Palace just before the break.
And the winger picked up where he left off by equalising early in the second half.
Zaha, who had beaten Kieran Trippier in a foot race for the first, got the better of Burnley on the break to level matters.
After Jason Shackell volleyed straight into the keeper's hands at one end, Zaha burst forward at the other and tucked the ball beyond Lee Grant.
Palace took the lead in the 66th minute after David Edgar headed the ball towards Damien Delaney, who made no mistake.
Striker Glenn Murray added a fourth – tapping in a cross from the left - with 15 minutes to go and it looked to be game over.
Charlie Austin gave hope of a comeback with his 11th goal in six games.
But there was no last-ditch comeback for the Clarets in response to a second-half capitulation.
