March has been a great month for the Eagles who bounced back from a narrow 1-0 defeat away at high-flying Southampton with a 3-1 home win against Queens Park Rangers, before an impressive performance at the Britannia Stadium resulted in a 2-1 defeat of Stoke City.
With plenty of fine performances to choose from, the NETELLER Player of the Month shortlist for March includes Yannick Bolasie, Wilfired Zaha and Glenn Murray, three players who combined forces to terrorise defences in the 2012/13 promotion season and are now reunited and flourishing in the Premier League. Defensive stalwart Scott Dann completes the foursome with his fifth consecutive nomination!

and you could be on the pitch at Selhurst Park to present the trophy before the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City on Monday 6th April.
The DR Congo international registered three assists in March and his performances have drawn plaudits from TV pundits and the national press. Yannick’s pace, physicality and unpredictability have struck panic into opposing defenders, exemplified by his two assists against Queens Park Rangers and his penalty award against Stoke.
After a barren spell of 18 games without a goal or assist, Alan Pardew’s faith in Willfried has been repaid with a goal in his last two games. Wilf showed his desire with a sliding finish against QPR that cost him a painful collision with the goalpost. The only smile bigger than the one on Wilfried’s face at the moment is the collective grin beaming back at him from the SE25 faithful.
The hitman’s physical presence and composure has earned a second nomination since his return from a loan spell at Championship side Reading. His match-winning performance at the notoriously physical Stoke City included a deft headed assist and thunderbolt penalty that Julian Speroni said would have beaten three goalkeepers! Despite the January arrivals of Yaya Sanogo and Shola Ameobi, Murray has established himself as Pardew’s first pick to lead the line.
Dann’s dominant displays against tricky opponents including Charlie Austin and Peter Crouch delighted the Crystal Palace fans and manager alike, offering a solid bedrock from which to build attacking displays. Dann’s eye for a pass and calmness on the ball have noticeably encouraged the best out of his defensive partner Damien Delaney, and has been unlucky not to get on the scoresheet this month.
