  2. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Christian Benteke sees a shot smothered by Ben Foster and Palace have a late corner here...

    Surely the win is now secure.

  3. YELLOW CARD

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Goalscorer Jordan Ayew receives the game's eighth booking.

  4. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Watford are pressing in the closing minutes but there remains no way through a determined Palace defence.

    Gary Cahill and Scott Dann have been rock solid this afternoon.

  5. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Five minutes of added time to come!

    Watford have a corner...

  6. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Time is running out for Watford.

    After the heights of last weekend's win over Liverpool this is looking like a rather different story for the Hornets who will continue to hover over the relegation places on goal difference.

    Christian Kabasele concedes a free-kick in the Palace half to relieve the pressure on the hosts.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    That's Andre Gray, Danny Welbeck and Ignacio Pussetto all on for Watford now as Nigel Pearson chases a late equaliser.

    He's going for it!

  8. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Wilfried Zaha breaks clear for Crystal Palace as Roy Hodgson's side try to put the game to bed, but Zaha runs out of steam and is caught before he can do any damage.

    Dare I say it, it's beginning to get a bit end-to-end!

  9. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    We're heading towards the final 10 minutes now and it's all very much still to play for.

    Crystal Palace could have put this to bed by now, while Watford could easily be level - or better.

    Palace are heading into the top half as it stands, though.

  10. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Christian Benteke! That would have been something!

    The Palace forward attempts a stunning overhead kick and Ben Foster can only watch as it hits the side-netting.

    Lovely stuff.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Luka Milivojevic is coming on for Crystal Palace.

    He replaces James McArthur for the final twenty minutes.

  12. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Another good save by Vicente Guaita, who scrambles across his goal to palm Abdoulaye Doucoure's header out for a corner.

    Nothing comes of the initial corner, but Will Hughes' shot from the edge of the box is well blocked.

  13. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Neither side has been able to seize control of this second half so far.

    Watford are still very much in this game and Troy Deeney reminds Palace of that - firing a powerful shot from range that forces Vicente Guaita into a good save.

  14. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Crystal Palace break at speed through Wilfried Zaha, who beats Ismaila Sarr to the ball to win a corner for his side.

    Christian Benteke fails to make a solid connection from the resulting cross though...

  15. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Roberto Pereyra shoots from just inside the box but his shot is caught by an untroubled Vicente Guaita.

    Watford will have to manage better than that to draw level here.

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Good save from Ben Foster to deny Wilfried Zaha!

    Zaha knocks the ball past Craig Cathcart but fails to make the most of the opportunity as he shoots straight at Ben Foster.

  17. YELLOW CARD

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Abdoulaye Doucoure drags Wilfried Zaha back and receives a yellow card now.

    Really scrappy start to the second half.

  18. YELLOW CARD

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Eventually, Etienne Capoue and Cheikhou Kouyate receives yellow cards for their respective involvement in that mess.

    Hopefully some football to come...

  19. Post update

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    Jordan Ayew gets a talking to from Anthony Taylor after both sides come together for some pushing and shoving at the start of this second half.

    It all comes form a poor challenge by Etienne Capoue, who is also involved in some afters with Wilfried Zaha.

    It's being reviewed by VAR...

  20. KICK-OFF

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

    We're back under way!
