WATCH: Connor Wickham belts wicked side volley to complete brace

After a free kick opportunity for Crystal Palace, Connor Wickham fired a missile into the back of the net.

Connor Wickham snapped out of his slump in style.

The Crystal Palace striker had already bagged his first goal from open play in ages thanks to Jonas Olsson’s mental mistake when this opportunity presented itself.

And my, did Wickham embrace it.

The big 22-year-old saw this chance coming to him, and turned to hammer a side volley home.

The match was wild, with offensively challenged West Bromwich Albion taking a 3-0 lead only to see Palace nearly take it away. And Alan Pardew’s Eagles had two deserved shouts for second-half penalties unheeded by Jonathan Moss.
