Kagisho Dikgacoi’s Premier League dream is alive, after Crystal Palace’s shock 2-0 win over Brighton last night.
The Eagles have no soared into the Championship playoff final at Wembley, where they will face Watford for the right to play in the English top-flight next season.
Manchester United bound England starlet, Wilfried Zaha, was the hero, scoring two cracking second half goals to inflict a rare home defeat on Gus Poyet’s Brighton.
But Bafana Bafana star KG also enjoyed his share of the limelight, with a delightful assist for Zaha’s venomous second in the 88th minute, which sent the Palace fans into raptures and the Brighton fans into the doldrums.
After the match, KG shared a warm embrace with buoyant Palace boss, Ian Holloway, who bellowed to the cameras: "How wrong was everyone to write us off? We've come to the hardest place ever and shown all sorts of strength of character."
Meanwhile, Zaha is all set to take the Premier League by storm next season with United, after enhancing his reputation with a superlative display.
"He was the player Manchester United saw could become a world star," Poyet said. "Until today, against us, he was not a £15m player. Sometimes the good players stand up on big occasions, so here we go. Zaha did."
"Wilf will be a match-winner at the top, top, top level," Holloway added.
