Saturday March 22nd 50 years ago.

At the Valley Charlton 1 - Palace 1 ( Roger Hoy )

Tense match neither side could afford to lose as it was so tight at the top of the table. While the draw was better for us as we still had games in hand. We did slip down to third, but we were in a good place and playing some good stuff, so much self belief did not look like losing.

Crowd at the Valley that day just under 33000.

Games still coming thick and fast

50 years ago today (26th March 1969) Palace 1 - Oxford Utd 1. Palace goal from Cliff Jackson

Important point dropped and worse of all top striker Bobby Woodruff suffered an injury to his collar bone and was to be out for the rest of the season.

If I recall correctly was the first time we had played Oxford in a home league game. They had only recently been voted into the football league (no promotion or relegation from the league in those days. Teams had to apply for re-election (bottom 4 of division 4) and non league teams could apply to join at their expense.

Palace now faced a very busy (even busier) period as the Easter Weekend approached (10 days away) three games in 5 days, one a top of the table clash with Middlesbrough at Selhurst. The atmosphere amongst Palace fans was electric the first division at last was in touching distance....

Indeed but while not playing in the final home game v Fulham the crowd on the pitch celebrating at the end of the game, chanted his name until he made an appearance, sling and all I think

Hugely popular player in his time at Palace

50 years ago today 29th March 1969
Palace secure a 2-1 win at Carlisle Lazarus and an OG, gave us a rare win in the far north.

We returned to 2nd place on goal average (as it was then) over Middlesbrough our next opponents at Selhurst on Good Friday April 4th.

A busy Easter ahead two home games and a difficult trip to Huddersfield.

With just 6 games left and an unbroken 10 game run without defeat since the season restart, dare we hope in August finally we would be in the big time!

Most of the next day's headlines were about the Oxford coaches getting smashed after the game. I believe they were parked behind the Old Stand, where it adjoins the Holmesdale.

Is this correct - 2 home games in 2 days?

And so were the fans. I think we had close to 40,000 for the Middlesborugh game and over 30,000 for the Pompey game 24 hrs later.

43000 for the Boro game.

A very hot sunny morning (11am ko) hardly a blade of grass on the pitch, a very bumpy dust bowl, no surprise it was a dull 0-0 draw terrible conditions and so much at stake, no surprise it finished 0-0.
