TOM INCE AND Joe Ledley scored on their debuts as Crystal Palace sent West Bromwich Albion into the Premier League relegation zone with a 3-1 win today.

Having both joined Palace on the final day of the January transfer window, Ince and Ledley scored in the first half to set the London club on their way to a third win in four league outings.

West Brom debutant Thievy Bifouma replied early in the second half, but Marouane Chamakh’s subsequent penalty completed a victory for Palace that sent Pepe Mel’s West Brom tumbling into the bottom three.

Elsewhere, Southampton twice surrendered the lead in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Stoke City at St Mary’s Stadium.

Goals from Rickie Lambert and Steven Davis put the hosts ahead, but they were pegged back on each occasion through Peter Odemwingie’s maiden strike for Stoke and Peter Crouch’s close-range effort shortly before half-time.
