CRYSTAL PALACE soared to their highest League position of the season and are now only outside of the top ten on goal difference.

Roy Hodgson’s team have now lost just one of their last 12 League games after spending the first three months rooted to the foot of the tale.

They took the lead in the 20th minute when Bakary Sako cut inside Phil Bardsley and beat the unsighted Nick Pope with a low shot through the legs of James Tarkowski.

In only his second Premier League start of the season, the Malian international was clearly out to make the most of his rare opportunity.
