Glenn Murray's 28th goal of the season gives Crystal Palace the lead at the break against Bristol City at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace have the lead at the break against Bristol City thanks to striker Glenn Murray's 34th-minute goal.

Palace thought that they had got off to the perfect start when Jazz Richards put the ball in the net after playing a neat one-two with Murray, only to see his effort ruled out incorrectly for offside.

The hosts were starting to up the ante but were denied a goal yet again, this time by the crossbar as Yannick Bolasie saw his bicycle kick crash into the frame of the goal.

Ian Holloway's side finally took the lead when Murray volleyed home Mile Jedinak's free kick at the back post to score his 28th goal of the season.
