Crystal Palace   3 - 1   Wolverhampton

By David Ornstein

Danny Butterfield scored a six-minute hat-trick as cash-strapped Crystal Palace clinched a fine win over Wolves in their FA Cup fourth-round replay.

Championship side Palace, who recently entered administration, dominated their Premier League opponents throughout.

Butterfield nodded the opener on 62 minutes, slotted his second after 65 and lashed home a third on 68.

A late Karl Henry strike could not stop Palace from setting up a home tie with Aston Villa in the fifth round.

The result was no less than Palace deserved after a magnificent performance, and it could hardly have provided the Selhurst Park club with a more welcome boost.

Palace will earn £90,000 for the win and £72,000 because the replay was transmitted live on television. They will receive a further £247,500 when the Villa game is screened live on 14 February.

Their final-whistle celebrations were easy to understand but, while the home crowd serenaded the whole team, much attention will focus on the heroics of Butterfield.

The 30-year-old is a full-back by trade but has been deployed in wide and attacking positions in recent weeks because of Palace boss Neil Warnock's lack of numbers.

606: DEBATE

He had scored seven goals in his previous 252 appearances for Palace and his most recent strike came as far back as 26 December 2008.

But he took all three goals with aplomb and his contribution was all the more timely given the sale of striker Victor Moses to Wigan on Monday.

Much of the attention coming into the match focused on how Palace would adapt to life without Moses - and they responded with an emphatic answer.

Fresh from their morale-boosting victory over Peterborough on Saturday and cheered on heartily by their loyal home fans, Palace made a ferocious start and immediately had Wolves on the ropes.

It took a vital header from Ronald Zuber to deny Alan Lee from heading in at the back post, Darren Ambrose curled over from Nathaniel Clyne's centre and Butterfield narrowly failed to connect with an Ambrose cross.

Ambrose was dictating the game's tempo but Nick Carle was equally impressive in midfield and he saw a fierce shot blocked by Michael Mancienne before drilling a low effort inches wide of Wayne Hennessey's left-hand post.

Despite naming a strong starting XI, Wolves boss Mick McCarthy would have been disappointed by the display of loan signing Geoffrey Mujangi Bia and strike partner Sam Vokes.

It was no surprise to see the pair replaced by Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Chris Iwelumo on 58 minutes but, rather than perk his side into life, the changes merely seemed to galvanise Palace.

Ambrose had already tested Hennessey with a free-kick and put another set-piece wide before sending in a corner that found its way to Butterfield, who made no mistake in heading home.

Wolves appeared stunned but before they could even think about getting themselves back on level terms their deficit had been doubled.

The robust, tireless and bloodied Lee flicked on a long ball forward from Palace keeper Julian Speroni and Ambrose cushioned it across for Butterfield to hold off Richard Stearman and squeeze a right-footed effort underneath Hennessy.

Moments later, Lee flicked on another huge kick from Speroni and Butterfield ghosted past a number of Wolves defenders to half-volley a left-footed drive into the net and complete a 'perfect hat-trick'.

There was still time for Henry to fire a crisp left-footed consolation into the top corner but, 20 years on from their 1990 FA Cup final defeat by Manchester United, the night belonged to Palace.
