Palace players in need of confidence boost

Roy Hodgson looks on during a Melbourne City A League training session at City Football Academy

The 70-year-old had coached 15 clubs in eight countries and led the national team of four countries, winning seven Swedish League titles, two Swedish Cup wins, one Swiss title and one Danish title.

A far more popular substitution than Hodgson's. The boos that greeted Hodgson's decision to substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Palace's outstanding player, with 12 minutes remaining were loud and vociferous.

An early strike from Steven Davis after Dusan Tadic's cross had been parried by Wayne Hennessey is all that now stands between the sides, but Hodgson's men have rarely anxious, other than a Christian Benteke effort that was well saved by Fraser Forster.

His sessions are very structured and for some players they will appear to be boring because of the repetition of the same tactical drills again and again and again. "I think we changed the team around and the young, exciting team you see today is the team I was putting together".

Speaking after the defeat, Hudgson said: "We didn't deserve a fairytale ending".

"The club is reeling right now, and, irrespective of who is brought in as manager, we need to steady the ship quickly ad get goals and points on the board before we are cast adrift".

Roy Hodgson's reign as Palace manager got off to the worst possible start as his side went 1-0 down within 6 minutes of play.

Palace, as they did in last week's loss to Burnley, enjoyed plenty of possession and created good chances to equalise but were thwarted by two good saves from goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Hodgson could hardly face a more daunting fixture list to begin life as Palace boss.

Hodgson said at the time of his appointment that the challenge he had accepted was an easier one than those presented by Fulham and West Brom, On his first game's evidence, that may yet prove wrong.

"We lost a knockout game and I was very sad about that".

The home side applied the pressure in the second half but Mauricio Pellegrino's side were largely untroubled late on as they recorded their second win of the season and left Palace rooted to the bottom of the table.
