EAGLES boss Patrick Vieira pinpointed a lack of cutting edge in attack as the reason the home side did not take all three points against Leeds.

Palace were the dominant side during the match on Monday night and were arguably deserving of a win.

Wilfried Zaha, Jean-Phillipe Mateta and Conor Gallagher all came close to scoring but either missed the target or were denied by Illan Meslier in the Leeds net.

The point for Palace ends a three-match losing streak for the Eagles, who still maintain hopes of a top-half finish.

“Our decision making,” he replied when asked if it was a lack of quality that cost his side.

“I think we were unlucky at times as well but I think we created enough situational chances to score and we didn’t today.

“It’s just about taking our chances and we have the quality, we know that the front-three can score goals.

“But yes, I will want them to score more regarding the number of chances that we are creating and today I think we were unlucky.

“I think the only thing that was missing in our game was that goal.”

Palace are next in action on Saturday as they travel down to the south coast to take on Southampton.
