Match Commentary

120' "I felt confident, and I wanted to take it. Delighted to see it fly in the top corner - and if that is my last game, what a way to sign off," says veteran striker and penalty hero Phillips. It's all over at Wembley in the Championship play-off final - Crystal Palace have beaten Watford by a goal to nil.
120' "Speechless. Exhausted and speechless.This is all I wanted, to leave Palace knowing they were in the Premier League," says Wilfried Zaha. Few could have done more than him to make that happen.
120' The final whistle goes on a 1-0 win for the Londoners, and it is a deserved win. Palace players are delirious. Kevin Phillips, with a penalty right on half time of extra time, made the difference. Watford never really got going. Their players are lying on the pitch, desolate. Zola is trying to offer words of comfort.
