That was the weekend that was: Palace beaten by best of enemies
Monday 23 November 1998
But such impressions can be misleading. In fact, the match was preceded by a Palace player introducing his two sons to the crowd and followed by an apology from a Swindon player for having scored a goal.
The boys treading the Swindon turf were Fraser Digby's sons, Joshua and Remi. Their father had been a firm favourite with the Wiltshire club's supporters for a dozen years.
The youngsters were wearing Palace kit but dad wanted them there as part of his thank-you to the Swindon fans "for supporting me over the years".
Meanwhile Swindon striker George Ndah admitted the victory gave rise to mixed emotions 12 months after he left Selhurst Park. It was Ndah's goal, just five minutes after replacing the injured Ty Gooden, that set Swindon on their way.
"It was great to score against my old club but I have many friends at Palace and I said beforehand that I would have to apologise if we won," he said.
