Cardiff are relegated after 3-2 loss to Eagles 

Cardiff were relegated from the Premier League after a 3-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace.

Neil Warnock's side, four points behind Brighton, are heading straight back down to the Sky Bet Championship which should not come as a great surprise as the Bluebirds had been 8-11 for the drop at the start of the season.

Wilfried Zaha put Palace in front, only for Martin Kelly's comical own goal to level matters before Michy Batshuayi regained the initiative for the visitors.

Andros Townsend extended Palace's advantage to confirm Cardiff's relegation and Brighton's survival despite Bobby Reid's late goal.

Key stats
  • Newport are unbeaten in 12 matches.
Expert verdict
Michael Flynn’s Newport headed into the playoffs as the fourth tier’s form side, securing seventh spot by finishing the season ten games unbeaten. Tranmere will know all too well about County’s disciplined defensive, having failed to score in both league meetings with them and, even with James Norwood leading the line, they look vulnerable.
