Keith Millen: Thomas Ince is a major threat against us

CRYSTAL Palace assistant manager Keith Millen says Blackpool star Thomas Ince has added goals to his game this season, but believes he and Ian Holloway know enough about their former club ahead of the game at Selhurst Park tomorrow (3pm).

Ince has won a numbers of admirers so far this season with 13 goals and attracted interest from Premier League clubs at the start of the season.

And Millen says the Eagles' coaching staff are currently working on getting Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie to find the back of the net more often after helping Ince during pre-season at Bloomfield Road.

"He gets in dangerous areas and scores penalties as well, but in open play he's a major threat," he told Advertiser Sport.

"He's added goals to his game this year and he's got the ability where his movement now is very good.

"I think he lost his way at Liverpool for whatever reason, and the way Ian likes to play, it really helps improve the widemen's game – they don't just stay wide like the old-fashioned wingers used to, they like to be involved in the game for long periods.

"We like our widemen to come infield, get on the ball and join in, and certainly Tom and Matt Phillips at Blackpool have improved as players doing that.

"We have been talking to both Wilfried and Yannick as well about using their movement to score more goals because they've been brilliant.

"They can run at people and beat people, but we also want them involved in moves where they can actually score goals on the end of it, so that's what we're working on them with at the moment.

"The good thing is, though, we know a lot about Blackpool so hopefully that can help us get organised and be ready for them."
