The 39-year-old veteran Kevin Phillips scored the only goal from the penalty spot at the end of the first half of extra time. A penalty from 39-year-old Kevin Phillips gave the Londoners victory after Manchester United-bound winger Wilfried Zaha was brought down by Watford’s Marco Cassetti.

Watford had a great chance and almost equalised at the very end but Joel Ward headed off the line.
Crystal Palace join Championship winners Cardiff and runners-up Hull and in next season they will play in Premier League, replacing relegated sides QPR, Reading and Wigan.
