Interesting facts

Tony Pulis will be returning to Selhurst Park for the first time since leaving Palace in August. The 57-year-old took charge of the Eagles 29 times, winning 13 of those matches.

Albion’s last win at Crystal Palace came on Tuesday, October 17, 2006. The Championship encounter finished 2-0 to Baggies thanks to goals from Zoltan Gera and Diomansy Kamara.

The first ever meeting between the two sides was back in 1969 at Selhurst Park. Albion ran out 3-1 winners.

The Baggies beat Palace 2-0 at The Hawthorns on the final day of the 2001/02 Division One season, thanks to goals from Darren Moore and Bob Taylor. The result ensured promotion to the Premier League for the first time.

We Said, They Said

We said: Tony Pulis – “It is no surprise to see Palace doing so well, they have some fantastic players. You have to give Alan Pardew credit for the job he has done there.”

They said: James McArthur – “We are playing with great belief at the moment and we believe that we can beat anyone.”

Coach information

Away coaches will be parked in a snake-like figure against the nearside kerb of Park Road, Whitehorse Lane and South Norwood Hill in that order post-match.

Due to the exceptional number of coaches, they are having to park in a residential area. Please can supporters be mindful that this is the case and that the reputation of the club rests with their actions.

Stewards will be on hand to regulate the flow of supporters and direct them towards the coaches.
