Crystal Palace secured the win with two first half goals, although the Rams must count themselves unlucky having a goal ruled out for off -side and having the ball cleared from off of the goal line on no less than three occasions.
Wilfred Zaha scored Palaces opening goal in the 30th minute. This was follwed up nine minutes later by Joe Goldsmith.
