Holloway's side set up a final against Watford at Wembley in two weeks' time when they will battle to return to the Premier League.

And the Crystal Palace manager thinks it is no more than his team deserve, as he told Sky Sports: "That's six undefeated now. I'm very proud of the players, I could burst."

Palace will look to complete the job against Watford and secure a place in the Premier League.

It was a nail-biting game for the fans and Holloway had special praise for two players in particular.

He added: "I wish (Wilfried) Zaha was staying here next season. And (Julian) Speroni? Well he has been outstanding, too.

"We will meet Watford in the final and they are a great side but so are we.

"I am pleased for all the people at the club, especially the fans."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
