Crystal Palace 2-1 Wigan Athletic

League Cup 2nd Round – Att: 7,649

Manager: Dougie Freedman

Two goals in six first-half minutes would be enough for Championship Crystal Palace to see off Premier League Wigan Athletic. Darren Ambrose opened the scoring on 24 minutes, converting after some good work from Wilfried Zaha down the left flank before Jonny Williams scored his first and only goal for the Eagles on the half hour.

Former Crystal Palace midfielder Ben Watson scored a late consolation for Wigan. Meanwhile, future Crystal Palace record signing James McArthur lined up for Wigan.

Palace would go on to within a penalty shootout of Wembley in the League Cup that year.

Crystal Palace 0-0 Burnley

Premier League – Att: 23,829

Manager: Neil Warnock

Tony Pulis had departed, Palace were winless in the league and recently promoted Burnley came to Selhurst Park. There was only going to be one winner as Palace dominated the game - or so we thought. A late penalty was awarded to the visitors after a foul by Mile Jedinak and up stepped Scott Arfield.

And who was the first man in to congratulate the keeper on his save? Debutant, James McArthur.

Here is what I had to say on the game at the time.
