KG’s Palace Promoted

Kagisho Dikgacoi’s Crystal Place will play in the English Premiership next season after an extra-time winner from veteran striker Kevin Phillips saw them beat Watford 1-0 in the Championship play-off final at Wembley on Monday.

Sadly for the South African international he only played 17 minutes of football in the final before leaving the field injured.

Still, Dikgacoi will rejoice in the fact that his side will be playing top flight football next season with the victory seeing Ian Holloway's side return to the Premiership after an eight-year absence and bank an estimated £120 million.

It was a tense affair with very few chances on goal as both sides were cagey in attack and instead opted to play cautious football, resulting in a very defence-minded game.

The pace of the game, though, did not suffer as the action was thick and fast in the centre of the park with tackles flying in from both sides.

After 90 minutes of action the sides could not be separated and the game went into extra-time.

After remaining untested during normal time, Palace keeper Julian Speroni made a wonderful save early in extra-time when he dived to his left at the feet of Troy Deeney to deny the Watford striker a tap in from two-yards out.

The breakthrough finally arrived in the 105th minute. Zaha's trickery fooled Marco Cassetti, who was tempted into a challenge that sent the Palace winger crashing to the ground.

Phillips stepped up and coolly slotted home to seal the win for Palace.
