After yesterday's heroics, it got me thinking of great Palace comebacks (or late late shows from yester year) A few Spring to mind.

Walsall away in 2002 (a few days after the 5-0 win over the weed) :supergrin::supergrin: we were trailing 3-1 after about 50 mins before Freedman and an AJ brace (to complete his second hat-trick) saw a superb comeback. One of AJ's goals on the night was world class.

Notts Country away in 1992. (Who I believe were managed by Warnock at the time) We were two nil down before cookie stabbed home a late goal to go in at the break a goal behind. Mark Bright levelled matters with a near post volley, before Nige saved a Mark Draper penalty, and Mortimer completed the comeback with a looping header into the away end.

Bolton away 2000. Bolton were a good team at the time, and always seemed to turn us over, and this saw the debut's of Staunton and the second debut of Freedman who had returned to the club from Forest. Trailing 3-1 with just minutes to play, Freedman and Morrison scored late goals to level matters. I'm also sure this came a matter of days after Alan Smith publicly criticised Morrison and put him on the transfer list (I may be wrong on that one)

Blackburn in the play-offs deserves a mention. Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, we comprehensively won 3-0 after extra time to secure our return to the top flight.

Sheffield United away September 1995? Sure we were 2-1 down with a matter of minutes to play and Deano popped up with a brace (one being a stunner) to complete a thrilling comeback.

Any others?

2 down to already-relegated Fulham back in 1969, an expectant crowd waiting to celebrete promotion. Thumping 3-2 win for the icing on the cake.

We've been pretty good at this over the last few years. Winning 3-2 at Burnley just after Pardew was appointed when we were 2-0 down. Also in our promotion season we beat Cardiff and Burnley (again) after being 2-0 down.

Crystanbul is probably our most famous though...

I seem to remember us losing 2-1 away to Sheffield United with a few minutes to go, when Bruce Dyer and Dean Gordon scored to give us a 3-2 win. Can anyone confirm the comeback? The final score is not in doubt, it is just whether we turned it round late on.

I can also remember the very painful late, late comeback by Blackpool who were losing 1-0 against us going into injury time and came away with a 2-1 win. It was one of the few Palace stories recounted by Malcolm Allison in his autobiography.

That was the one I was talking about in the OP. Deano's strike was a stunner, in off the bar from 30 yards, and Dyer secured the win when Deano raced through the defence, before pulling it back for an open goal for Dyer to poke home. Deano scored some crackers early on in 95/96

I remember this game like it was yesterday, down to the fact I'd got together with my at-the-time girlfriend the night before the game. Got to the ground late, due to me having been rubbish with train times & missed the first County goal. Nigel's pen save was great. Morty's winner header was the most rubbish headed goal I have ever seen. Loved that game.

Boro ZDS Cup match 1989 or 1988. We went 2-1 down after about 87 or 88 mins. Scored 2 goals at the death and won 3-2. Oddly this was played on a Saturday

Gayle only got two that game, Puncheon scored the other.

The Millwall one was great for the reason you say... but they then did exactly the same at the Den in the return fixture after Watson had put us 1-0 up.

In the last 40(?) years or so we've only won from 2-0 down at home twice: back to back Saturdays in 2013 (Cardiff 3-2 (Murray hat trick) and Burnley 4-3 (Wilfx2, Delaney, Murray). We did score two late goals to draw 2-2 with Gillingham on the Saturday before we lost the semi final second leg to Liverpool in 2001 though.

Of course, in our first win at the Amex we scored in the 80th, 89th and 90th minutes to win 3-1.

Peterborough away in the promotion season was great, scoring in the 86th and 88th minutes to win 2-1 and go top of the league.

Yup... Scannell and Easter in the 91st and 93rd minutes to win 2-1. Was beautiful.

The Nicky Carle one discussed earlier was great too. We'd been giving Paddy Kenny all sorts of abuse and when they scored a last minute winner, he ran along the Palace fans with his middle fingers up. To be fair to him, the abuse had been about his wife who'd been exposed as cheating on him not long before. Anyway, when he fumbled Carle's effort into his own goal in the 94th minute, no one celebrated, just pointed at him shouting 'Kenny! Kenny! Kenny!'

There was a good one in 2007 away at QPR just after Warnock was appointed. We were 1-0 down when Clinton Morrison and Clint Hill both scored in the space of about 90 seconds mid way through the second half to win it 2-1.

Also... kind of a come back the year before at WBA. They were battering us and 1-0 up when Morrison equalised out of the blue. Then, they had a man sent off and Watson scored the penalty (it was the Tuesday after he'd been booed when he took one). However, despite being down to ten men, they continued to batter us and equalised again. They were all over us for the entire match but Lewis Grabban went clear on goal in the last minute, he hit a weak shot at the keeper who spilled it back to him for an open goal for his first professional strike. There was only about 200 of us up there and we all went nuts.

Thanks. :p am I correct it was in injury time ?

Yes; there'd been a long injury delay, West Brom scored in the first minute or two of injury time and we scored in something like the 7th minute of added time - cue lots of Palace fans running back into the away end having left before the final whistle!

We won 3-2 at Tranmere in 95/96 after going 2 down. The late Jeroen Boere scored his only Palace goal that night.
Plus, the 120th minute FA Cup goal v Watford mentioned earlier was scored by George Ndah, not Dyer.

We had to beat Wrexham away by two goals to give ourselves a chance of promotion in our final game of the season in 1977 We scored 2 goals in the dying minutes to win 4-2. Wrexham then lost Mansfield to ensure we were promoted. Think I have that right but I dare say someone with a better memory will put me right

Spot on. We won all our last 4, including the 2 goal margin at Wrexham, having beaten them at home as well a week earlier.

Loads of Palace made the trip up to Mansfield to support them against Wrexham.

It's also worth remembering that going into that match at Wrexham, they were unbeaten at home all season and needed just 1 point from two remaining home fixtures to secure promotion. They contrived to lose them both.

How gutting must that have been? Particularly the nature of their defeat to us.

We left it late against Southend 93/94 (who were going really well at the time) and Jolly scored a late goal coming in at the back post to secure all 3 points.

The Mansfield game was at Wrexham. We had already played all our games. Wrexham had been unbeaten at home all season until those last two games against their promotion rivals.

We were 2-0 up in the Wrexham game before surrendering the lead in the second half. Our fourth goal came straight from the kick-off after we scored our third.

We finished third on goal difference to Rotherham and were promoted. Wrexham finished one point behind.

Should have been 4-2 as Ian Wright hit the underside of the bar and we could see the ball bounced clearly over the line, but was'nt given. Possibly one of the scariest trips back after the game as the natives were hugely pissed off - Boro had never played at Wembley up to that point and we stopped them for another year!

Yep. Those first 8 games cost us dear in the end, but even then, there were so many individual moments where you think 'what if?'

Higgingbotham's goal, Leigertwood's stupid foul, Rommedahl's goal at Selhurst, Safri's handball on the line, etc.

Another one that stands out for me was the early kick-off at home to Bolton. We battered them for the entire game and should have won. Instead we ended up losing 1-0 :(

I think it was Brighty's home debut and the first time he and Wright played together. The both scored sandwiching Ticker Taylor's thunderbolt. I think we were 2-0 and 3-1 down before coming back for 3-3. November 86?
Some of the above might be wrong.

Probably need Ian King's help with this, but as mentioned earlier, Palace lost 11-4 to Man City in 1926.

Not 100% sure, but I think Palace were trailing 7-1 at one point, before getting the score back to 8-4 and then collapsing again in the closing minutes!

In the days when a goalkeeper could pick up a back pass, lobbing him from what must have been 20 yards(?) was truly something special.

Bright's winner was glorious. Park Road afterwards was carnage.

1978/79. 1-2 down at Preston in the last couple of minutes. Ian Walsh & Mike Elwiss (playing against the club that had just sold him) made it 3-2. The locals weren't amused.

It was hilarious going back home on the coaches that day! The Preston fans had given Elwiss untold stick because of his move to Palace, booed throughout the match.

As the game drew to a close, with Preston looking comfortable at 2-1, many Northenders made for the exits. As you say, Walsh equalised and then Elwiss applied the coup de grace with the winning goal in injury time.

Heading back from Deepdale, in the days when ony Radio Two would have been the way to find out the score and not until well after the match - many of the Preston fans taunted us on the Palace coaches, holding up two fingers on one hand and one finger on the other.

You should have seen the puzzled looks when we gleefully came back with the 3-2 signals - great Palace memory!

Seem to recall a late goal at Wembley in 1997. And of course Dougie v Stockport

Wolves at home in the 97 playoff semi finals. One late goal for us . One late goal for them. One very late goal for us.
