History of the Wimbledon v Crystal Palace fixture

Crystal Pal face a trip to Wimbledon at Selhurst Park Stadium on Saturday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. It couldn't be much closer,Eagles having 3 wins against 4 losses.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in October 2002, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division One match.
