The top 10 televised Crystal Palace goals of all time voted by the fans.

10. Ian Wright v Brighton
Division Two - March 27, 1989

Ian Wright raced onto a long ball down the left channel, controlled the bouncing ball with his head and unleashed a vicious half-volley into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

9. Don Rogers v Stoke City
Division One - February 17, 1973

Don Rogers played a one-two with Alan Whittle in the centre of a boggy Selhurst Park, jinked his way past two defenders before cooly lofting over the keeper.

8. Ian Wright (2) v Man Utd
FA Cup Final - May 12, 1990

John Salako delivered a peach of a cross from the left to the far post where Wright got ahead of his marker to volley into the roof of the net for his second goal since coming on as a sub.

7. Alan Pardew v Liverpool
FA Cup Semi-final - April 8, 1990

Alan Pardew became an instant hero with the Palace faithful when he headed in the winning goal after Andy Thorn had flicked on Andy Gray's corner kick.

6. John Hughes v Sheffield United
Division One - December 4, 1971

John Hughes collected a short free-kick just inside the United half and surged towards goal before firing a 25-yard rocket into the top left corner.

5. Ian Wright (2) v Wimbledon
Division One - May 4, 1991

Nigel Martyn's punt upfield was taken down on Wright's thigh and the livewire spun away from the defender and launched an audacious lob from 40 yards and into the net.

4. Ian Wright (1) v Man Utd
FA Cup Final - May 12, 1990

Mark Bright slipped in strike partner Wright on the left of the area and he left a sorry Gary Pallister flat on his backside and drilled a low shot past Jim Leighton into the far corner for his first goal of the day.

3. Dougie Freedman v Stockport
Division One - May 6, 2001

David Hopkin's huge punt forward from his own box was controlled by Clinton Morrison and he fed Freedman who ghosted past two defenders and curled home the winner that kept Palace up.

2. Don Rogers (2) v Man Utd
Division One - December 16, 1972

Rogers got on the end of the perfect throughball before rounding the keeper and swept the ball home past three United defenders desperately trying to keep the fifth goal out.

1. David Hopkin v Sheffield Utd
Division One Play-off Final - May 26, 1997

Andy Roberts played a short corner to Simon Rodger whose inswinging cross was headed out by Carl Tiler. The ball fell to David Hopkin 25 yards out and he took one touch before smacking a curling shot that flew into the top corner.
