Published Add your comment

Glenn Murray headed the winner in extra time as npower Championship side Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United 2-1 in the Carling Cup quarter-finals.

Murray nodded in a free-kick from Darren Ambrose, the scorer of the opening goal, as Palace overturned the odds against a much-changed United team at Old Trafford.

Ambrose had ended shot-shy Palace's long goal drought with a stunning goal after 65 minutes but United forced extra time with a Federico Macheda penalty.
