Holloway On Palace Win Over Sunderland

Holloway On Palace Win Over Sunderland
Ian Holloway was happy with his side after they beat Sunderland 3-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Dwight Gayle and Stuart O'Keefe secured the victory for Palace in the second half after Steven Fletcher had cancelled out Danny Gabbidon's early opener to give Palace their first win of the season.

It didn't help Sunderland that John O'Shea was given his marching orders for bringing down Gayle to give away the penalty that restored the home side's lead, before O'Keefe made sure of the points in stoppage time.

Holloway said that he was proud of his side when he spoke to reporters after the game: 'All you can do is work on your performances, whether you win or not in this division.

'The first one we got one or two things wrong against Tottenham, kept giving the ball away, we got better by the end but we lost.

'In the second one we were terrific in the first half, then had a terrible wobble, let a goal in then let another one in. Today, they scored and we didn`t wobble.

'I thought that was a commanding performance. I was so pleased. I`m very, very pleased with the determination, the work rate and the performance. Some of that passing was really nice to watch.'
