Clinton Morrison has now hit 100 Crystal Palace goals and we pick out five of his best ones.

1. Sheffield Wednesday (home) 1-0 May 1998

Morrison, aged 18, had a debut to remember by coming off the bench to grab the winning goal on the last day of the 1997/98 Premier League campaign.

He'd only been on the pitch for eight minutes when he popped up in the six-yard box to poke home and give Palace a winning finale to the season.

2. Sunderland (home) 2-1 December 2000

Palace booked a place in the semi-finals of the Worthington Cup thanks to Morrison's late winner.

Ten minutes from time, he received the ball on the edge of the box, turned a defender and then fired right footed into the left corner of the net.

3. Liverpool (home) 2-1 January 2001

In the Worthington Cup semi-final first leg at Selhurst Park, Morrison's goal from Mikael Forssell's knockdown made it 2-0 to the Eagles before Vladimir Smicer scored a consolation for the Reds.

After the match, Morrison slated Michael Owen and Emile Heskey for missing a number of gilt-edged chances and was jeered by the Anfield crowd throughout the 90 minutes of the second leg.

4. Coventry City (home) 1-0 September 2006

Morrison has built a reputation for a being supreme goal-poacher, but he netted a cracking long-range effort against Coventry.

Gary Borrowdale sent in a cross from the left and Morrison, with his back to goal, controlled the ball with his right foot before hooking a left-foot volley into the back of the net.

5. QPR (home) 1-1 November 2007

The striker pulled up the historic 100 goals for Crystal Palace with an 88th-minute equaliser against QPR. The Republic of Ireland ace rose highest to nod home Mark Kennedy's free-kick in a rare headed goal.

Morrison, banned from wearing his "100 Not Out" t-shirt by boss Neil Warnock, ran the entire length of the field to celebrate the goal in front of his mum.
