FA Cup 3rd round:Millwall 1-2 Crystal Palace

 

Millwall 1-2 Crystal Palace: Michael Olise spurred a comeback for Crystal Palace which save Jack Butland’s blushes and help the Premier League side avert an FA Cup shock at Millwall.

 

Former England goalkeeper Jack Butland’s blunder allowed Benik Afobe the opening goal as Millwall took a merited half-time lead.

But Michael Olise, an £8 million summer acquisition from Reading, curled in a superb equalizer and crossed for Palace’s winner, Jean-Philippe Mateta.

 

However, some unsavoury scenes off the field marred the game.

 

A section of the home crowd discernibly booed Palace players taking the knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement before kick-off.

A bottle thrown from the stands struck Olise as he prepared to take a corner, and there were audible homophobic chants directed at Palace’s on-loan Chelsea attacker Conor Gallagher.
