Bobby Reid’s late goal gave the Bluebirds hope but Palace eventually ran out deserved 3-2 winners as they continued their mightily impressive form on the road this season.

Reid bagged a late consolation, but it wasn’t enough to save Neil Warnock and his merry men from the drop.

They return to the Championship at the first time of asking alongside Fulham and Huddersfield.

It was a day to forget for the Welsh side… although this little cameo from Warnock will live long in the memory.

You’ll be seeing that in your nightmares…
