Eagles set for cash windfall after Villa replay

Published Add your comment

Cash-strapped Crystal Palace stand to pick up the best part of £500,000 following the 2-2 FA Cup draw with Aston Villa.

Stiliyan Petrov scored a controversial late equaliser for Villa but Palace, who are in administration with debts of around £30million, can console themselves with a decent television cash windfall for Sunday's clash and the forthcoming replay.

"We wanted to take them back there if we are honest," said Warnock. "Let's get up there and then get on with the league. If they have a decent day and we don't there's only one team going to win it."

Warnock added: "The team Martin O'Neill put out was a fabulous compliment to us. We weren't far away. I can't explain how proud I am. It was a fantastic game. Villa have had to roll their sleeves up to stay in this cup."
