SPORT FOOTBALL DIVISION ONE Away-day blues again for Palace as Chamberlain's experience tells Old-hand Alex still the tops A Thomas races to the rescue
GE seems to be no barrier to Watford's 37-year-old keeper Alex Chamberlain. He may be the oldest goalkeeper in the First Division, but he is still among the very best. Chamberlain produced a magnificent performance that, along with a superb goal from Gifton Noel-Williams, enabled Watford to inflict yet another demoralising defeat on Crystal Palace. In the 41st minute skipper Neil Cox hit a long free-kick upfield, the ball was met in the air by Micah Hyde who cleverly directed it back into the path of Noel-Williams.
