Thomas says the pressure is off away

JEROME THOMAS is ready to help Palace gain three points at Southampton tomorrow and believes playing away in the Premier League may relieve pressure on some of the new players.

Five Eagles made their home debut in the top flight last Sunday against Swansea City, including Thomas, but the winger has kept an eye on Palace's upcoming fixtures.

The Eagles travel to West Bromwich Albion, Hull City and Norwich City, while they face Everton at home.

"Looking at the fixtures, I think our biggest month is November," Thomas said.

"There are a lot of points there up for grabs. Liverpool away next week, those games are always good because it's a challenge for the players who haven't played in the Premier League before. It's also a win-win because no one really expects us to go to Anfield and get something, but you can as Southampton have proven.

"If we can put a good performance in and get something this weekend, that will give us the confidence for Liverpool.

"I think sometimes it helps to be away at this level because it takes a lot of the pressure off the players."

On the number of new signings in the squad, Thomas knows they will need to gel quickly if they are to move away from the bottom of the table.

"It's going to take time, but most teams are in the same boat," he said. "Time isn't a luxury we have though, so we have to find a balance of the players who are looking good and know what the gaffer wants already.

"We might have been top for the amount of players we brought in out of all the teams in the Premier League.

"Different players, different positions, different nationalities, and at the same time you've got a coach in Ian Holloway who is trying to implement things they're probably not used to."
