A team that included Barry Bannan, Adlene Guedioura and Keshi Anderson travelled to St Albans for the club’s latest pre-season friendly.
A Palace equaliser just past the hour mark saw the game end as a 1-1 draw but despite dominating long periods of the first half it was the home side that took an early lead.
Sam Corcoran’s corner wasn’t cleared and Martin knocked the ball down to Jack Green, who made no mistake from close range with the early opportunity.
Palace’s two best chances of the opening period saw Guedioura have a shot cleared off the line and then goalkeeper Coulton smothered a ball across goal from Bannan.
St Albans second half goalkeeper Joe Welch was guilty of a mistake that led to the equaliser as he threw the ball straight to Anderson who set up Jacob Berkeley and the youngster made no mistake to put the sides on level terms.
