Reid gets more experience

Kyel Reid was a winner with Crystal Palace on his second appearance for the Championship club as they won 2-1 at high-flying Stoke City.

The 20-year-old winger was making his second appearance for the Eagles since joining on loan from West Ham United. His debut came as a half-time substitute in last weekend's 0-0 draw at home to Blackpool and he had another 34 minutes off the bench to impress on Monday night. He turned in a lively display, including a shot that just missed the target on 70 minutes.

The victory was enough to move Palace up to sixth in the standings, just inside the promotion play-off positions. On Saturday, Neil Warnock's side will welcome Scunthorpe United - the same day as Richard Wright's temporary club Southampton go to Charlton Athletic and Coventry City, boasting Zavon Hines, look to complete a disappointing week for Stoke. Before that, on Tuesday, 19-year-old forward Jack Jeffery will hope to figure for non-league Cambridge United, looking for promotion to the Football League, when they go to Rushden and Diamonds.
