Crystal Palace: Fans react to win that sealed play-offs in 2008 - Crystal Palace

A lot of Crystal Palace fans are loving highlights posted by the club on Twitter of their victory in the Championship against Burnley back in 2008 which secured their place in the play-offs.

They needed the win, and they did it in style as they thrashed their opponents 5-0, with goals coming from Ben Watson, Victor Moses, Tom Soares, Scott Sinclair and Clinton Morrison, via BBC Sport.

This set them up with a play-off tie against Bristol City, but sadly the Eagles lost 4-2 on aggregate, via BBC Sport. However the fact they finished so high up the league that campaign was a shock in itself as the club were fighting a relegation battle when Neil Warnock took over in October, via BBC Sport.

Clinton Morrison was a club legend, making 191 appearances for the South London side and scoring 67 goals, whilst providing seven assists, via Transfermarkt.

He was crucial in the 2007/08 season, as he scored 16 goals in 43 appearances and without him Palace definitely would not have had such a successful campaign.

Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:
