Eagles through

September 26 2000

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace

A very late goal by veteran defender Andy Linighan sent Palace through in the Worthington Cup on away goals. Tonight's 1-1 draw (after extra time) was enough for the Eagles to progress to the third round.

Burnley had gone 0-1 up just before half time through Andy Cooke who scored with a header.

It wasn't until the 92 minute before Palace equalised through substitute Andy Linighan. He took advantage of a mixe-up between Burnley defender Thomas and keeper Michopoulos and side-footed home into an empty net.

With this goal the game went into extra-time. There was no score in extra-time so Palace went through on away goals, having scored twice in the away leg at Turf Moor.

Post match comments

After the game Palace boss Alan Smith admitted his side still has a lot to learn.

He commented:"They don't understand the nuts and bolts of the game. They are not mentally tough enough."

"You don't always get justice and if we hadn't won over the two games it would have been ridiculous."

"The players have got to learn that what the manager says goes."
