U18s Report: Palace 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday

29 September 2014

Palace's academy side succumbed to a single goal defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at Beckenham thanks to Mason Duffy's first-half goal.

The Owls midfielder netted on 25 minutes after some good work by Spencer Brown to give the visitors a half-time lead, and despite their best efforts Palace couldn't conjure up an equaliser playing against a deep defensive line.

The game's decisive moment came when Brown got into the box and cut the ball back, and when it bobbled around the area it came to Duffy who smashed it home.

In a closely-fought affair, the hosts' best chances came through Corie Andrews who went close before and after the break but saw his attempts foiled by the Owls goalkeeper as the Yorkshire side clung on to clinch the victory.
