Grant McCann gives Peterborough United a 1-0 lead over Crystal Palace at the break.

A early strike from Grant McCann has given struggling Peterborough United a 1-0 lead over high-flying Crystal Palace in the Championship.

The hosts snatched an early lead through McCann, who turned the ball in from close range after some impressive trickery from George Boyd.

Peter Ramage had the chance to draw Ian Holloway's side level moments later when he met Owen Garvan's cross with a powerful header, but he put it wide.

Palace continued to apply the pressure and Posh had goalkeeper Robert Olejnik to thank for keeping them level. The Austrian produced a fingertips save to deny the ever-impressive Wilfred Zaha in the ninth minute.

Palace enjoyed plenty of possession in the final third, but the hosts defended well after taking the lead to preserve their advantage going into the break.
