Unbeaten League Run Ends in Leicester Mudbath

Looking back tonight’s 1-0 defeat at Leicester City seemed like an all-too-familiar story which we all remember.

  • Palace playing below their best against Leicester City – check.
  • Despite a poor performance, Palace seem to hold on with relative ease – check.
  • In the dying moments a Leicester player scores the winner off their shin – check.

Thankfully for those of us who still have scars from the 1996 play-off final this was just a league game, and the winner was scored by Barry Hayles, not Steve Claridge. Still not a happy night though.
