Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman was content with his side's 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Jay Rodriguez put the hosts ahead early on from the spot but Wilfried Zaha, who was later sent off, earned Palace a penalty which Darren Ambrose converted.

Freedman said: "I think a draw is a fair result and I am very happy with that point because we didn't start very well.

"Our character shone through in the end, but by getting back on level terms and holding on to that point after going down to 10 men.

"I felt the referee made the right decision not to send Jonathan Parr off when he gave away the early penalty because I felt we had a covering player, and I also felt the red card he showed to Wilfried Zaha was the right decision too. "
