Cheick Doucoure avoided one particular of the ‘most apparent bookings’ as he escaped staying sent off in Crystal Palace’s vacation to Brighton.
The Seagulls ran out 1- winners with a aim versus the run of participate in many thanks to Solly March – who alternatively spookily scored in the 15th minute on March 15 – just after Crystal Palace missed 3 apparent-lower prospects in the opening quarter of an hour.
Irrespective of the questions about the fixture remaining a genuine derby, the rivalry was undoubtedly rearing its head in the opening 45 minutes at the AMEX.
Defender Joel Veltman endured a tasty fight with Palace winger Wilfried Zaha during, with the Seagulls gentleman being forced to continue to keep tissue up his nose right after the two had tussled for possession.
But it was the instant amongst Veltman and a different Palace star that left talkSPORT 2’s commentators reporting live from the AMEX incensed as the Eagles guy place in multiple hefty tackles.
Doucoure earnt himself a yellow card from referee Peter Bankes in the 22nd minute as he caught a leg out to cease Veltman skipping past him.
And just as the sport edged toward the crack, Brighton followers were being still left furious as the referee failed to punish the Palace man for yet another foul, this time on Moises Caicedo five-yards outdoors the penalty place.
