Crystal Palace defender Tomkins: Zaha deserves our Player of the Year

They may not have thought it after those seven consecutive defeats to start to the season, but Palace have eventually strolled over the finish line, soaking in the spring sunshine and waving at the crowd as they did so.

Palace had the first chance of the game in the seventh minute when captain Luka Milivojevic recovered possession in the West Brom half, but he directed his shot just wide of the goal.

The midfielder began the move that nearly put McArthur through on goal, forced a further save from Foster, and again contributed when Zaha just missed the target from close range.

This final outing, though, was all about Hodgson and regular match-winner Zaha, who broke the deadlock in the 70th minute from a Van Aanholt assist, the Netherlands global doubling the advantage eight minutes later.

Three relievers finished the game for Detroit , with Shane Greene pitching the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances. Dan is 2-2 with 4 holds and a 4.38 ERA (6 ER, 12.1 IP) in 13 relief appearances with the Mariners this season.

When Zaha then broke and sent Andros Townsend through one-on-one with Foster, the winger slipped as he struck, sending his effort wide.

After proving to be a fundamental part of Crystal Palace's bid for survival, Wilfried Zaha is reportedly a wanted man with Liverpool and Chelsea among those eyeing a move. Patrick van Aanholt provided the cross and Zaha was there to direct it into the back of the net from six yards out.

The goal was the Ivory Coast international's ninth of an impressive campaign, and also means that he has scored in each of his previous three appearances at Selhurst Park. "We've been safe for two games". Home game and a victory. There was to be no top-half finish, but an 11th-placed finish remains a remarkable feat for a side written off and spiralling towards an nearly inevitable relegation just seven months ago.
