According to today's media, Palace keeper Julian Speroni performed heroics in the Palace goal to keep a clean sheet.

From my viewpoint, it was a day of wasted opportunities for Barnsley, one that could have seen us win by three or four on any other day.

Just five minutes in, Adam Hamill's cross from the right found Filipe Teixeira but he chipped the ball over from eight yards.

Two minutes later Hamill hit a right foot shot from the edge of the area over.

One of the better chances came when Daniel Bogdanovic beat the Palace offside trap and raced 20 yards into their area. He tried to place the ball past Julian Speroni but the keeper caught it.

Minutes later, Bogdanovic was again denied by the keeper when his shot from the edge of the area was palmed round the post.

In the second half, Teixeira also missed a good chance, choosing to shoot crossed ball with his left foot wide of the upright, when from my view a right boot would have placed the ball easily past Speroni. Ryan Shotton saw a header saved.

Paul Hart said: "I thought (Speroni) was excellent. Week after week he goes about his job; I think he is a terrific goalkeeper.

Mark Robins said: "Crystal Palace came and did a job and I thought their keeper was excellent and kept them in the game."

Nearly fell asleep watching it. Very disappointing. Now I'm worried what a team like Forest might do to us on Tuesday Night.
