The 81st-minute penalty by Luka Milivojevic at Newcastle United not only secured Crystal Palace a valuable three points in their fight against relegation, but edged the Serb closer to a Premier League record.
The goal was Milivojevic's 10th from the spot this season.
He is now only one shy of a Premier League record held by a former Palace player in a single campaign.
Only Andy Johnson has scored more penalties in a Premier League season, converting 11 spot-kicks for Palace in 2004/05.

And only one other team, Chelsea, in 2009/10, have won more penalties in a season than Palace’s 10 this campaign.
As on five other occasions this season, the penalty was awarded for a foul on Wilfried Zaha. No other player has won as many penalties in 2018/19.
The goal was also Milivojevic’s 23rd in the Premier League, 19 of which have come from the spot.
It moved him into outright second spot in the rankings of top-scoring Serbs in the competition.
His only current rival is Aleksandar Mitrovic, with 20 goals.
