Luka Milivojević said in his pre-match captain's notes that fans in the stadium, when facing your rivals, "are the reason for a late winner or us digging deep to take a point when we are looking at a defeat." Therefore, you have to wonder whether the famous Selhurst Park atmosphere would have helped the Eagles through injury time to see out the one-goal advantage.
A retrospective read of the matchday programme, once the dust has settled on a game, tends to offer added context, such as Milivojević's comments, as well as allowing for a thorough read of everything else going on around the club, without the pre-match nerves of which way the bragging rights will fall.
Therefore, don't forget you can still purchase the matchday programme from the Eagles' clash v the Seagulls by grabbing a digital version for £1.99.
