Derby county shock Crystal palace 1-nill

Chris Martin’s close-range strike gave Derby County a shock FA Cup thirds round win at Premier League Crystal Palace.

Rams striker Martin scored the only goal for the Championship side just after the half-hour at
Selhurst Park.

The Palace had captain Luka Milivojevic sent off after referee Michael Oliver consulted a pitchside monitor following a video assistant referee (VAR) check.

Milivojevic had originally been shown a yellow card after a tussle with Derby’s Tom Huddlestone.

Derby’s victory owed much to the experience of Wayne Rooney and Huddlestone in the heart of

The Rams weathered some early Palace pressure and seized the advantage with the opening goal
from Martin just after the half-hour mark.

Jayden Bogle’s quick feet took him past Palace full- back Jairo Riedewald, and his cross was met by Martin, who stole in front of Gary Cahill and poked the ball past Wayne Hennessey.

A deflected effort from Palace midfielder James McCarthy brought a smart reaction save out of Roos shortly after half-time, while Bogle headed wide
from a glorious position for Derby shortly after.

Palace were reduced to 10 men when Milivojevic was shown a red card for violent conduct.

Derby could have added a second late on when Martyn Waghorn struck the post and Rooney then
saw a low effort saved by Hennessey.
