  1. Thanks for joining me this afternoon and for all your emails and Tweets - do stick around for all the post-match reaction and interviews.

  2. Congratulations to Crystal Palace though, they are back in the big time thanks to a goal from 39-year-old Kevin Phillips - the script was perhaps written for the evergreen forward.

  3. Joy and despair at either end of Wembley stadium as Palace fans celebrate and Watford supporters drift away, despondent.

  4. 120+1

    FT: Crystal Palace 1 Watford 0 - Crystal Palace are promoted to the Premier League.

  5. 120+1

    Alumina's long kick deflects off a Palace defender and goes just wide for a corner.

  6. 120

    One minute to be added on.

  7. 120

    Off the line!!! Great close control by Forestieri in the area, his shot is goalbound, but Ward heads it off the line!!!!

  8. 118

    Watford are screaming for a penalty as Ward blocks Battocchio's shot - looked like the ball hit his chest rather than arm though so good decision by the referee. Abdi then fires another shot well over the bar.

  9. 116

    Gabbidon does well to hold off Battocchio and hit the ball clear.

  10. 114

    Abdi takes it but the ball is easily saved by Speroni.

  11. 113

    Deeny goes down under a challenge by Moritz. Free kick Watford 30 yards from goal.....

  12. 111

    Speroni is brave to collect the ball down low at the far post.

  13. 110

    Hogg gets down the right and wins a corner off Delaney.

  14. 108

    Ward's cross is overhit and goes out for a goal kick to Watford.

  15. 107

    Zaha finds Phillips with a wonderful long pass but the veteran striker can't quite get in a shot.

  16. 106

    The second half of extra time is underway....

  17. No arguments about the penalty, it was a clumsy tackle by Cassetti. Palace are 15 minutes from the Premier League.

  18. Half time in extra time: Crystal Palace 1 Watford 0

  19. Kevin Phillips, in his fourth play-off final, against his old club, slams the ball into the top corner! What a priceless goal that could be!!!

  20. 105

    Goal for Crystal Palace!!! Phillips!!
