The Yorkshire club secured promotion via the Championship play-offs last season, with their only goal across those three matches coming when Sheffield Wednesday's Tom Lees turned into his own net in the semi-final second leg.

And David Wagner's men broke the deadlock at Selhurst Park on Sunday (AEST) in similar fashion, as Aaron Mooy's corner was flicked onto the far post by Christopher Schindler, before Joel Ward bundled the ball into his own net after Mathias Jorgensen had knocked it back across goal.

Steve Mounie then made it 2-0 with a brilliant header off a Mooy cross from the left, putting the visiting fans in dreamland at half-time in south London.

The upset win was completed when Mounie's assured first-time finish made sure of the points 12 minutes from time to round out the 3-0 victory.
