The strike which came at the 6th minute of added time at the end of the first half saw the home side race into a 2-0 lead. And the club perfectly safeguarded that lead come the second half to wrench out of a howler of a winless spree.
The win took Crystal Palace into 12th place with the 22 points with the club safely sitting above the bottom three at the moment.
The result meanwhile left Sheffield United bereft of a win in the season to leave the side hammered down in bottom spot. The defeat leaves the club in a sorry position with Chris Wilder’s role at the club growing increasingly cumbersome as the club stares at impending relegation this season.
