    And that's everything from Selhurst Park on this page today. The match report will be available to read here shortly and you can follow reaction here.

    Goodbye!

  2. FULL-TIME

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Huuuuuuge win for Palace. They hold on. They're six points clear of danger.

  3. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    A cross is overhit by Brighton. Goal kick to Palace. Hodsgon's side are almost there.

    30 seconds left and now Wilfried Zaha has the ball.

  4. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Glenn Murray misses from three yards!!! That was the chance.

    Perfect cross from the left and Murray just had to divert it in but gets the finish horribly wrong.

  5. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Wayne Hennessey comes and catches yet again. He has done everything asked of him this half.

  6. Added time

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Four minutes added on. This is huge for Palace in particular.

    I thought Izquierdo would get more opportunities in this second half but he's not had the impact I expected. Brighton are playing longer, more direct and really pushing for the equaliser.

    It's been difficult for Palace to keep up the pace from the first half. They're just praying they can contain Brighton.

  8. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Corner to Brighton. They continue to search for the equaliser...

    Headed over. Palace still clinging on for the crucial win.

    Wayne Hennessey is booked for time wasting.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Final change for Albion. Solly March on for Gaetan Bong.

  10. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Take a bow Wayne Hennessey. Two brilliant saves to deny Palace.

    First he dives out to punch away a cross and then throws himself low to palm away Dale Stephens volley with his right hand. Palace are visibly tired now. They conceded goals in the final 10 minutes against Man United, Liverpool and Bournemouth recently, remember.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    It seems that yellow card for Zaha was for dissent.

    Palace make another change. Jairo Riedewald replaces the excellent Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Wilfried Zaha

    Wilfried Zaha has just been given a yellow card and I have to say I have no idea why. I'll get back to you. There didn't seem to be a tackle.

    Wilfried Zaha and Roy Hodgson
  13. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Not the best of starts for Leo Ulloa. He deflects the ball straight out of play at a Brighton corner.

  14. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    A change for each side. Two strikers on.

    Christian Benteke replaces Yohan Cabaye and Leonardo Ulloa comes on for Pascal Gross.

    No sign of the action stopping then?

    Christian Benteke Substitution
  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    What are Palace doing?! The hosts are attacking but suddenly Brighton break and are two-on-one at the back. Anthony Knockaert overhits his pass to give possesion back to Palace but Patrick van Aanholt takes too long and his clearance is blocked. The ball drops perfectly for Glenn Murray in the area and his shot looks to be going in until Mamadou Sakho throws himself in the way of the ball.

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    The home fans are now a little quieter. Nerves are starting to kick in. Palace are six points clear of the relegation zone as it stands.

  17. 'Agonising'

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Murray pulled away brilliantly at the back post. He really stretched and it rolled across the goalline agonisingly. You can sense nerves from Palace. They're giving the ball away and committing a few fouls. They will have to hold it together if they want three points this afternoon.

  18. CLOSE!

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    Close. Very close.

    Brighton are on top now in this second half and almost have their equaliser. Beram Kayal plays a lovely floated cross to the back post where Glenn Murray stretches all of his 34-year-old body but just can't divert the ball in at the back post with his toe. The ball trickles narrowly wide of the post.

  19. Twin talents

    It's fascinating to compare Wilfried Zaha and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. He's got a lazy, loping stride but has fabulous control. Zaha is so quick and mesmerising at times with the ball at his feet. There's a nice balance between the two - Loftus-Cheek less likely to lose the ball but Zaha more likely to create a goal.

    Wilfried Zaha
  20. Post update

    Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton

    The free-kick is blocked behind for a corner and then Wayne Hennessey again strongly comes to claim the cross. Good goalkeeping.
