Crystal Palace saw off Brighton & Hove Albion in the Championship play-off semi-finals on Monday night after a brace from Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha sealed a 2-0 victory.

The two sides drew a blank in the first-leg at Selhurst Park, but it was the away side that stole the show at Brighton - and, in particular, it was the Championship Player of the Year that secured a play-off final place.

Two second-half goals from Zaha were enough to give Palace a 2-0 aggregate win, and they subsequently set up a final at Wembley against Watford for a place in England's top division.

The tricky winger headed in the first goal with 20 minutes of the match remaining, before blasting in an excellent second in the closing stages.

Palace boss Ian Holloway has been through the play-offs before with his former club Blackpool - he has experienced winning them and also losing them - so he will be prepared for the final at Wembley.

The Eagles manager is quite the character and is known in the footballing world for his antics during press conferences and interviews - and he didn't disappoint after being filmed in the changing room after his side's semi-final victory.

A Palace player was filming the side in the dressing room and, as he turned the camera around, he caught Holloway dancing across the floor, much to the delight of the Palace players.
