Huddersfield Town v Crystal Palace

James Tomkins and Luka Milivojevic strike to give Eagles their first PL victory in eight matches

Crystal Palace moved out of the bottom three as goals from James Tomkins and Luka Milivojevic gave them a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield Town.

The visiting team had lost four in a row and not won in seven, but started well.

After Milivojevic's free-kick went just wide, they led on 23 minutes when Tomkins prodded home from close range at the second attempt.

In the second half, Tomkins had a shot cleared off the line while Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounie fired just wide on the turn.

Milivojevic made sure of the points on 68 minutes with a penalty after Andros Townsend had been fouled by Zanka.

Palace rise to 16th, two points clear of the bottom three, a place and a point behind Huddersfield Town.
