'Tougher nut to crack
Chris Coleman said after Ciy's hard fought win today at Selhurst Park, 'I thought from the first minute to the last minute we had chances and played well. Our supporters were fantastic again, a great following and I thought we were worthy of the win.
'Palace are a good team. If they hadn't had ten points taken away they would have been on the verge of the play-offs so this is a very good result.
'It was a very good goal from David Bell. The keeper probably answered the question for him rather than asking one of him, but he still took it very, very well.
