Robins stun Eagles with late strike

Published Add your comment

David Noble´s last-gasp 30-yard goal enabled Bristol City to stun Crystal Palace in a thrilling Coca-Cola Championship play-off semi-final first leg.

The former West Ham trainee struck in stoppage-time, shortly after Ben Watson´s penalty had cancelled out Louis Carey´s opener.

Carey, the Bristol-born defender and City captain, had picked the perfect time to score his first goal of the season, a stunning curling effort which gave Julian Speroni no chance.
