Sun shines, Palace play well shocker

Going home happy

For everyone who was doomsaying about my trip down to watch us play Preston (including myself) needn’t have worried. Palace produced what many considered to be their best performance of the season, leading to a 3-0 win.

Palace’s goals came from a first-half double from Shefki Kuqi and a second half header from Leon Cort. Preston provided a few bursts of comedy, first from Brett Ormerod’s fantastic miskick and then from the substituted David Nugent, who proceeded to throw a succession of boots, socks and shinpads from the Preston bench when he was taken off.
