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
He admitted he was ‘surprised’ but labelled it as ‘great’ news.
I'm honestly surprised but it's great

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.
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.
