Palace boss: We don't just rely on Wilfried Zaha

WILFRIED Zaha may have been Palace's stand-out performer so far this season, but manager Ian Holloway has stressed that his side do not rely on the 20-year-old in every game.
Glenn Murray is in scintillating form up front, but Holloway believes his group of players are well-suited to each other and a credit to the football club.
"I guarantee we're not a one man team," he said. "Everyone can mention the obvious – everybody does.
"Wilfried's getting all the plaudits and quite rightly so because he's a very good player, but we're just trying to keep everyone's feet on the ground and marching towards and improving.
"In the school playground, everybody says 'oh, he's the best player', everybody does.
"The best at what? The best at tackling? It's got to be Jedinak or KG hasn't it?
"The best at organising the backline? You've got Delaney and Ramage, who have been absolutely excellent – you've got the whole thing clicking and working together.
"There's loads of things I think I can get us doing, but this group of people really suit each other.
"The crowd are completely awesome, but when it doesn't happen for us, I've got to be completely calm and keep everybody going and try to make some significant changes sometimes from the bench to try and do that.
"I had a chance to do that at Peterborough and it worked. I had a chance to do that at Leeds and it didn't, so that hurt, but nevermind, let's get on with the next one."
That next fixture is on Saturday when the manager's former club Blackpool arrive in SE25, while he revealed he and his wife used to live not so far away from Selhurst Park as he currently looks to finalise plans to relocate closer to the club.
"I'll be thoroughly looking forward and totally proud of the team that will be coming here because I tried to put them together and I'll be totally proud of my new one that will be playing against them," he said.
"On the whole, I'm just glad I can move and get my house down here now.
"I'll be able to move and get my wife out of a very nice hotel but it's not right. We had flat here in Croydon years ago in Woodside, so the romance is still there I think."
