Saturday was another warm spring day but unlike the weather the match did not sparkle, too much at stake, promotion nerves where on show.

Well into the second half and Cliff Jackson latched onto a punt into the penalty area at the Holmesdale end, flicked the ball over the keeper and we were one up. The crowd and the team relaxed and we tore into Pompey. Stevie Kember made it 2-0 with a great solo goal, it would have made the Big Match goal of the season but the entries were already closed.

Against the run of play Pompey nicked one back only for Palace to win a vital penalty. Much to most people's surprise up stepped captain John Sewell to take the spot kick. Dear old Shovel scuffed the kick but after what seemed many bounces on the very bumpy pitch the ball crept in and two vital points were ours !

Just four games to go 5 points would be enough, but two tough away games lay ahead in the next week with our unbeaten run now at 12 games were we going to hold our nerve. Much nail biting in SE25 in the next 14 days, we really were so close

And here are the goals - watch from 17' 42"
