Late goals by Yohan Cabaye and Fraizer Campbell have given Crystal Palace a 2-0 victory at second-tier club Reading in their FA Cup quarterfinal.
Cabaye opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 85th minute after Jake Cooper was sent off for fouling Yannick Bolasie.
Substitute Campbell made sure of Palace's place in the Wembley semifinals when he pounced on a clever pass from Wilfried Zaha and beat goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi in stoppage time.
"I thought we were terrific today," Palace manager Alan Pardew told the BBC.
"It was a tricky tie for us because the intensity in the stadium was great.
"Reading were on their game but we were really, really good today and should have wrapped it up long before the penalty."
Palace captain Mile Jedinak was terrific for the London club and twice came close to beating the outstanding Al Habsi early in the second half.
