Abuja - Luka Milivojevic's second-half penalty kick secured a point for Crystal Palace as they recovered from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw at home to fellow strugglers Newcastle United.

They fell behind in the 22nd minute with some awful marking by the Eagles defence as they allowed Kenedy's corner to bounce through a crowd of players and an unmarked Mohamed Diame converted at the far post.

A right-wing cross from DeAndre Yedlin gave Newcastle their first sight of goal, through Ayoze Perez's first-time, close-range shot that was on target but did not test Wayne Hennessey.

Phil, who is now cancer-free, described one symptom as needing the toilet more frequently throughout the night. Men who are black, overweight, over 50 or have a family history of prostate cancer are most at risk.

Towards the end of the first half Palace again worked their way into the visitors' area, from where Yohan Cabaye backheeled to Zaha, the forward's shot was brilliantly saved by Darlow, and Christian Benteke then failed to control when the rebound fell to him in front of an open goal.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson believes his side is a bit short on numbers as they hope to find the energy and performances to stay in the Premier League.

Wilfred Zaha squandered a flawless opportunity to give Palace the early advantage in the opening two minutes after being played through by Luka Milivojevic.

Groundhog Day 2018: Who is Punxsutawney Phil? Did he see his shadow?
The President of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club Inner Circle proclaimed his prophecy of six more weeks of winter . His prediction of six more weeks of winter was accurate for a few regions, but it came up short for several others.

The south Londoners nearly hit back just before half-time as Yohan Cabaye carried the ball into the box on the left and flicked it back to Zaha, whose shot was parried into the path of Benteke by Darlow, but the striker couldn't react quickly enough to turn home from a couple of yards out. Andros Townsend could have perhaps done better with a header from 12 yards out but the Eagles were soon back on level terms.

Milivojevic converted in spite of goalkeeper Karl Darlow getting a hand to the ball.

The Toon were indebted to Clark for coming away with a point as the defender made two last-ditch blocks in quick succession to deny Benteke and Cabaye from point-blank range in the 88th minute.
