Crystal Palace: Matt Woosnam reacts to Hartlepool update

Crystal Palace: Matt Woosnam reacts to Hartlepool update -Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace correspondent Matt Woosnam has been reacting to the ‘surprising’ news that the club’s FA Cup meeting with Hartlepool next month has sold out.

The Lowdown: Some fans not happy

The Eagles were drawn at home against the League Two side in the fourth round after they came from behind to beat rivals Millwall earlier this month.

How many signings do Palace need in January?









Patrick Vieira’s side will host Hartlepool on Saturday, February 5 at 3pm, and initially, some Palace supporters were unhappy at the ticket prices.

Many felt that £20 for an adult was too much, with one labelling it as ‘a disgrace’, however, that hasn’t stopped thousands of other supporters from securing their seat.

The Latest: Woosnam reacts

The game is now officially a sell-out, with Woosnam taking to Twitter on Wednesday when there were around 21 seats remaining at Selhurst Park.

He admitted he was ‘surprised’ but labelled it as ‘great’ news.

Who scored Palace's first goal of 2021?

The Verdict: Brilliant

This is a strong show of support to Vieira and his side to sell out a cup game against fourth-tier opposition.

Palace’s last FA Cup game at home with supporters in attendance came back in January 2020, with just 15,507 turning up in a shock 1-0 defeat to Championship side Derby County.

However, fast forward two years and the feel-good factor seems to be back at Selhurst Park following plenty of changes, and this latest off-field update just goes to show that.
