Wilfried Zaha helped the hosts click into gear as he raided down the left and lifted a cross to the back post which looked to be sneaking into the net before David Stockdale turned it behind.
Palace had a great chance to take the lead when David Meyler brought down Dean Moxey in the box and a penalty was awarded. However, Glenn Murray saw his spot kick saved by Stockdale to keep the scores level.
Ian Holloway's side were given another penalty in stoppage time as Murray's shot hit the arm of a Tigers defender. Kevin Phillips dispatched the spot kick despite Stockdale getting a hand to his shot.
