Crystal Palace stay top of the Championship table with a comfortable 3-0 win over Derby.
Crystal Palace have retained their position at the top of the Championship table courtesy of a comfortable 3-0 win over Derby County this afternoon.
The hosts took the lead after just 12 minutes as Glenn Murray met Yannick Bolasie's corner to nod in at the far post.
Mile Jedinak almost doubled the hosts' lead with another headed effort soon after, but his strike flashed just past the post.
Palace nearly started the second half in perfect fashion as Wilfred Zaha crossed to Andre Moritz, but the Brazilian's effort went over the bar.
They finally did find the second goal just before the hour mark as Murray nodded the ball down to Moritz, who proceeded to volley it home.
The three points were sealed eight minutes from time as Murray drove into the box, beating Richard Keogh before firing past Adam Legzdins to secure the Eagles' place at the top of the table.
