It was a night of mixed emotions for the loaned-out Palace players participating in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night, with some progressing and others crashing out of the competition.
Hiram Boateng was on target for the second consecutive game, powering a header in from a Craig Tanner corner to give Plymouth Argyle a first half lead at home to Exeter City. The Devon derby was settled in the the 49th minute, with Tanner hitting Plymouth's second and securing their place in the next round of the competition.
Boateng, again, played the full 90 minutes of the win, with ex-Eagle Clinton Morrison making a substitute appearance for the visitors at Home Park.
Forward Keshi Anderson played 72 minutes of Doncaster Rovers' 2-0 away defeat at York City. The youngster has been in impressive form since joining the Rovers, but could do little to stop them crashing out of the tournament.
Sullay Kaikai played 20 minutes for Shrewsbury Town, coming on as a second half substitute in their 2-1 defeat away to Fleetwood Town. The winger entered the action at 1-1, but was unable to tip the balance in his side's favour, with a 91st minute winner from Fleetwood's Bobby Grant settling the tie.
Christian Scales was an unused substitute in Crawley Town's 3-0 humbling at home to Southend United.
