Wolverhampton Wanderers reached the FA Cup fourth round with a narrow win over a much-changed Crystal Palace side.
Adama Traore’s scorching left-foot effort proved decisive for the hosts, who were worthy winners.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side dominated possession and could have won by a greater margin but for some wasteful finishing.
Palace, who made nine changes from the Premier League win over Sheffield United, did not have a shot on target.
