In the 9th minute, Darren Ward pounced to score the rebound after Boaz Myhill made an outstanding parry.
City let in a second in the 24th minute, Leon Cort turning a low cross from Palace's right into his own net.
Parkin, who was favoured to Darryl Duffy to start the match, pulled one back a minute later, controlling a ball into the box before finishing from close range.
City failed to penetrate Gabor Kiraly's goal any further though despite having a decent amount of possession for the rest of the match.
