Diogo Jota’s late goal earns winless Wolves a point at Palace

Diogo Jota’s dramatic stoppage-time equaliser rescued a point for Wolves at Crystal Palace.

Leander Dendoncker’s own goal had seemed certain to give Palace victory before Jota’s late strike for the visitors, who had Romain Saiss sent off for two bookings.

Wilfried Zaha’s failure to maintain possession for Palace saw Adama Traore gallop clear on the right and his far-post cross was poked home by Jota from four yards after defender Joel Ward lost his balance.

Palace had been closing in on a top-six spot after a wayward Ward shot flew past goalkeeper Rui Patricio off the unfortunate Dendoncker.

But Wolves, who enjoyed the better of a largely uneventful first half with Dendoncker, Matt Doherty and Jota all having chances to open the scoring, merited their point.

Crystal Palace move up to 12th in the table while Wolves, after just avoiding their third consecutive Premier League defeat, remain 19th.
