Academy Round-up: Palace Lose Ground on Leaders

Crystal Palace suffered a huge blow in their race against Arsenal to be crowned champions of Group A.

Charlton Athletic defeated the Eagles youngsters in a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park.

A wealth of postponements due to FA Youth Cup committments and bad weather saw some fixtures disrupted this weekend, but the games that did take place provoked major talking points.

Wolverhampton Wanderers lost to Blackburn Rovers to disrupt their challenge against Manchester City at the top of group C.

The South-coast derby saw Southampton edge Portsmouth in a 2-0 victory.

And Crewe Alexandre lifted themselves clear of the bottom of Group C as they thrashed West Bromwich Albion 4-1.
