It may have come via a right balls up from Crystal Palace ‘keeper Wayne Hennessey, but Remi Garde finally tasted victory. Joleon Lescott headed straight at Hennessey from a corner, only for the Eagles’ glovesman to produce the mother of all fumbles and gift the Premier League strugglers a vital goal.

Still, without a win in the league since the opening day of the season, the Villans will take anything they can get and ultimately picked up a precious three points. Still, one wonders if the victory does actually offer the Villans a credible lifeline or is it just a rare moment of joy in an inevitable slide towards the Championship?

Could Garde and co. do a Leicester and beat the drop? Maybe they’ll find themselves just off the top of the table in 12 months’ time too! (they won’t).
