Substitute Gary McSheffrey's goal on 69 minutes was quickly cancelled out just three minutes later by Palace striker Ade Akinbiyi.

McAllister said: "I am pleased with the point, but I'm disappointed that we were unable to hang on to our lead a little longer.

"It was a fair result although there was no flow in our play. We have played pretty football away from home and we are now back to basics and it is paying dividends for us."
