 Crystal Palace F.C. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Palace achieved a 3-2 victory against Sunderland in the first leg of the play-off semi-final at Selhurst Park on Friday 14th May. In the second leg at the Stadium of Light, Palace dominated most of the first half and had achieved the very rare feat for a southern club of almost completely silencing north-east supporters.
A 1-1 draw at Selhurst took the tie to a second replay at Stamford Bridge, scene of Palace's win over Chelsea the season before, where the Eagles emerged triumphant 1-0 with a Phil Holder goal and after a hotly disputed Brian Horton penalty miss.
The rivalalry continues with recent highlights for Palace fans being the 5-0 win against Brighton at Selhurst Park, on Tuesday 26 October 2002, including a hatrick from Andy Johnson, and a dramatic 2-3 victory at Brighton's Withdean Stadium, with a last-minute goal from Jamaican Jobi McAnuff, on Sunday 20 November 2005.
