Table of Contents
Crystal Palace held Aston Villa to a dramatic 2-2 draw in the fifth-round of the FA Cup at Selhurst Park to earn a replay for the cash-strapped second-tier club.

The home side took the lead after 24 minutes through Johannes Ertl's header, but Villa were level 11 minutes later when James Collins nodded home a Stewart Downing free-kick.

Palace worked tirelessly throughout and did not let up in the second half and they were rewarded as Darren Ambrose gave them the lead once more with a stunning 36-yard free-kick.

The Eagles were heading into the quarterfinals until Stiliyan Petrov dived in to equalise with a spectacular header three minutes from time.
