Crystal Palace have been handed the LMA's LG Performance of the Week award for their 2-0 win against West Bromwich Albion seven days ago.
Eagles boss Sam Allardyce was handed the accolade following the club's return from a warm weather training camp in Morocco after the judging panel comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, decided that the Eagles' success at The Hawthorns merited the prize.
Allardyce spoke of the collective delight at the club when receiving this award. “Winning Performance of the Week is a proud moment not just for me but the players, staff and everyone at the football club. It was important to get another clean sheet and a back-to-back win which we hope to be the start of our recovery. The game will probably be remembered for the two outstanding pieces of quality from Wilf and Andros, but defensively the security at the back gave us the platform to go on and win this game.”
Two stunning solo goals from Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend clinched Palace's first win at the venue since 1973, but more importantly followed up their victory against Middlesbrough the previous week to secure another maximum points and pull them out of the relegation zone.
