Palace finally secure three points after Ben Watson's late penalty gives the Eagles their first win in seven league games and hands Peter Taylor a much needed boost after a string of poor results had left him under pressure. Palace were forced to sweat for the win after going a goal down through Hudson's own-goal. However, the introduction of Freedman changed the game for Palace and they took the lead after Soares and Fletcher notched for the home side. Beattie looked to have rescued a point for Sheffield United after some slack defending by Palace but after Soares was hauled down in the box Watson tucked the penalty away which helped to lift the gloom over Selhurst Park.
