Most memorable game against Barnsley:

We`ve had so many great games against Palace, I could say either of the 1-0 wins in the Premier League, the 3-2 home defeat at the start of the 1999/2000 season that saw us crash to the bottom of the league after two games, only to finish 4th and reach the Play-Off Final, but personally my most memorable game is the 4-0 trashing we gave the Eagles at Oakwell when John Hendrie was in charge.

I watched the game from the Family Area in the Upper East Stand. It`s a great view from all the way up there and Sean McClare`s goal is the one I`ll always remember, smashed into the roof of the net at the away end.

It was a deceptively encouraging result in what turned out to be a mediocre season, as we landed back in the Championship with a bump.
