2-1 win at Tranmere on Sunday with goals from Hayden Mullins and Clinton Morrison.

The win gave the Eagles a respectable final position of 15th in an extremely turbulent season which nearly saw the club go out of business.

Palace started off the brighter of the two teams and had a Morrison goal ruled out for offside early on.

But they took the lead in the 35th minute when Mullins fired a low, 30-yard free-kick through a crowded goalmouth. And just four minutes later, Clinton Morrison made it two with his 15th goal of the season. Leon McKenzie crossed from the right and Morrison volleyed it home.

Tranmere had their fair share of chances, but youngster Matt Gregg was in outstanding form throughout the afternoon.

Within seconds of the restart, Tranmere got back into the game when Scott Taylor buried his shot into the top corner.

But Palace held on, leaving the travelling 2,500 fans in party mood who sang Steve Coppell's name at the end.

Coppell saluted the fans at the final whistle and threw his club blazer into the crowd. He has worked wonders to have kept the team safe from relegation despite all the financial problems.

After the game he said: "The bond that has developed between club and supporters during the crisis has been amazing."
