Goalscorers Frazier Campbell and Yannick Bolasie were delighted to hit personal milestones as well as help Palace pick up a fine 3-2 victory against Everton at Goodison Park.
Campbell scored his first goal for the club since his summer arrival from Cardiff City after beating Toffees goalkeeper Tim Howard to a high ball, before Bolasie ended his long wait for a Premier League goal by slipping the ball into the net after being found by Jason Puncheon to grab the all-important third goal.
After the match the pair were pleased to have helped the club to their first league victory of the season, and believe the Eagles can use this this a springboard for future successes in the coming weeks.
“It's fantastic to get the first win of the season,” said Campbell. “Goodison Park is a tough place to come to as Everton are a great side and were on the back of two good performances but it's always great to get on the scoresheet, I had to jump high but it was great to score.
“The win here boosts morale. Everton will be right up the top of the table at the end of the season so it's good for us to go away from home, play some good stuff and get three points.”
Meanwhile Bolasie was quick to share the praise with the rest of his team-mates, adding: “I'm happy to get off the mark but credit has to go to the team, we've been working really hard and shut Everton out by shutting down the space.
“It's a joy to play in this team, I'd like to thank the three midfielders (Mile Jedinak, James McArthur and Joe Ledley) and the defence who keep giving me the ball, and I'd also like to thank Punch for looking up and seeing me ready to score.
“It's great for Frazier to get off the mark too and help boost his confidence, so today is a huge lift for us. We haven't lost in three so we'll be looking to carry that on and move forward from here.”
