Still searching for their first league win of 2016, Palace began April by travelling to West Ham United and the sides shared out the points in an entertaining 2-2 draw
which saw Dwight Gayle score the visitors' equaliser, and afterwards he said
: "It was nice to be back out there playing and to get the goal is a bonus. When the ball rolled out I just thought I'd pick a corner and place it and luckily it went it."

Post-match, Puncheon was delighted to score his first of the campaign, saying
: It’s been difficult for me, I normally chip in with a few goals but I haven’t done that this season and I’ve been disappointed in myself. But that’s come today and I’m happy for that - it meant a lot and it was a massive win for us.”
Huge well done to you and all the @PalaceLadiesFC, Pammy.

After a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford
against Manchester United - which saw Julian Speroni back between the sticks
for the first time this season - the big day finally arrived as Alan Pardew took his side to Wembley to face Watford in the FA Cup semi-final, and goals from Bolasie and Connor Wickham
booked Palace's spot in just their second ever FA Cup final, with the former saying post-match
: "For the fans especially, the way this season's been a bit of a rollercoaster, it's great to get into the final. A lovely thing for our manager as well, because he's stuck with us and all of our players."
