Morrison seals late Palace victory without a kiss - Mike Anstead

Copy from Football Unlimited of 14/08/2006.

Clinton Morrison's kiss of life saved Crystal Palace at the death but he refused to plant a smacker on Peter Taylor after securing victory over Leeds. "I told him to give me a kiss when he scored the winner," said the manager, who stood on the sideline pointing to his cheek as the striker wheeled away in celebration at his stoppage-time decider.

Morrison, however, was not ready to bow to such demands. "He wanted me to give him a kiss but I wanted to give him a high five. If I'd given him a kiss I don't think my missus would have been too happy." Instead Taylor can console himself with a third successive win that propelled Palace back to the top of the Championship with maximum points.

It should not have taken the south Londoners until injury-time to wrap up the win after Leeds's striker Geoff Horsfield was sent off in the 15th minute for a violent swing at Mark Hudson, who was unforgiving as the striker pleaded his innocence.
