Wissa's late header cancels out Zaha stunner as Brentford draw at Palace


Substitute Yoane Wissa's late header salvaged a 1-1 draw for Brentford at Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

Wissa connected with Vitaly Janelt's cross (88) to cancel out Wilfried Zaha's earlier stunner (59) and a late Brentford onslaught almost saw them take all three points back to west London as Bryan Mbuemo and Ben Mee came close to scoring in stoppage-time.

Zaha, who is reportedly of interest to Chelsea and Arsenal in the final week of the transfer window, returned to the starting line-up after a leg injury kept him out of Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Man Cityand produced a moment of magic to break the deadlock on what had been a frustrating evening for both teams until the latter stages.

Brentford move up to ninth with the point, while Palace are up to 13th.
