Moments of the Decade: Morrison's 100th Goal

18 November 2015

All this week we are giving you the chance to vote for your favourite Palace moment of the last decade. Here we look back at Clinton Morrison's 100th goal for the Eagles.

After enjoying a strong start to the 2007-08 season, scoring two in his first two appearances, Clinton Morrison was on the brink of reaching a century for the Eagles, but he would have to wait. A dip in form saw Peter Taylor drop the south Londoner from the starting eleven and he would remain on 99 Palace goals until after the manager's sacking.

Neil Warnock arrived in early October and soon returned Morrison to the starting line up, which proved to be a good decision. The Republic of Ireland international reached the milestone the following month, scoring in the 88th minute at home to Queens Park Rangers to secure a 1-1 draw for Palace on 10th November 2007.

Palace went from strength to strength from then on and found themselves in the Play-Offs come the end of the season, though were beaten by Bristol City over two legs. Morrision, however, finished that season on a solid 16 goals, his highest return of the three campaigns of his second spell in SE25.

He had scored in the final game prior to the Play-Offs, a 5-0 drubbing at home to Burnley, meaning that Morrison ended his Palace career having scored in his first and last league games for the club. He was presented with a Special Achievement Award at the end of season awards night, ending his Eagles career on 113 goals.
