Holloway celebrates play-off win with Michael Jackson impression

World of Sport

Ian Holloway was in a good mood after watching Crystal Palace beat Brighton 2-0 to book his side a spot at Wembley.

In the dressing room after the match, the colourful manager did his best Michael Jackson impression as soon as one of the player's turned on some music and everybody seemed to take great delight in watching his moves.

Brighton, undefeated in 11 games, were clear favourites to sink their fierce rivals on their own patch after the goalless first leg.

But Palace produced the match and afterwards Holloway said: "It was nice knowing everyone wrote us off and we beat a very good team today. We've come to the hardest place ever and passed a test of character. Did I doubt my lads? No. Did I doubt myself? No."
