Palace give them Wat for!

Crystal Palace put Watford to the sword with a 3-0 home victory.

They roared into a two-goal lead inside the first six minutes with Victor Moses netting with just over a minute gone and Alan Lee doubled the lead just four minutes later.

Darren Ambrose sealed the victory in what was boss Neil Warnock's 100th league game in charge with a third goal nine minutes after the break.

Moses, back in the starting 11 again in place of Freddie Sears, had a good chance within the opening seconds before putting Palace in front in the second minute.

The young winger got on the end of Julian Speroni's long clearance, bamboozled two defenders and fired into the bottom right corner.

Lee headed home Danny Butterfield's right wing cross in the sixth minute for his fourth goal of the season.

Shaun Derry blasted off target and Neil Danns volleyed over the bar as Palace completely dominated.

Henri Lansbury tried his luck from 25 yards in Watford's first major attempt on the half hour mark, while Danny Graham forced Speroni into a good save.

Watford were handed a great chance to get back into the game when Lee brought down Lansbury in the box for a penalty on the stroke of half-time. But Speroni produced an excellent save to push out Graham's spot-kick.

Nine minutes after the interval, Ambrose scored his 12th of the season with an 18-yard strike past Loach.

Loach pushed out an effort from Moses, then down the other end Speroni saved from Craig Cathcart.

Eagles substitute Calvin Andrew had two chances to grab a fourth goal late on, before Watford's Tom Cleverley saw a shot smack against the post.
