CRYSTAL Palace boss Ian Holloway was disappointed by the performances from some of his senior professionals in Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Crawley Town. Despite dominating large parts of the first half, the Eagles found themselves a goal down at the break through Billy Clarke's close range opener. But Holloway, who was disappointed for nearly 2,000 Palace fans making the short trip down the A23, insisted it was just a "training session" for his side, with Crawley stepping up their fitness ahead of the League One campaign next Saturday. "It wasn't a very nice day and it wasn't a very nice training session to have to witness," he said after the game. "The boys will learn a lot from it, especially the young ones. "I was shocked at my senior lads because we had certain situations last year where I thought they would have remembered how to organise people to stop them playing out so comfortably in the first half. "I'm very disappointed, but more for the fans because I didn't recognise that as a Palace team – we didn't fight together or work together."Don't miss the full post-match video interview with Holloway either later today or tomorrow morning.
