Crystal Palace winger: Yannick Bolasie and I can cause problems for teams

JEROME Thomas is hoping he and Yannick Bolasie can get a run of games together in the Palace starting XI to help the team start finding the back of the net. "Yannick's a great talent and I try to give him advice being a winger myself and going through what I've been through," Thomas told Advertiser Sport recently. "He needs to find the balance of being creative and doing tricks on the ball and giving it easy with the end product. "I think he's still trying to find that balance, but with Yala attacking down the right and myself attacking down the left, I think that's going to be a problem for a lot of teams. Indeed, Thomas has played at the highest level for ten years, with spells at Charlton, Portsmouth and West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League. And he has been trying to give advice to those who hadn't tasted top flight football before the start of this season. "When players ask me about the Premier League and the Championship players ask me about the experience at this level, there are two things I tell them," said Thomas. "One, I tell them you need confidence, and two, you can't make mistakes. In the Championship you'll get away with it, but here you'll get punished, it's that simple. "You can't give the ball away cheaply and you can't give the opposition time on the ball. "You think you're dropping off and doing the right thing, but then the right-back passes it forward and it ends up in the top corner." Thomas has vowed to "lead by example", no matter what position in the league the Eagles find themselves in. And he says the players can't achieve survival without the supporters either. "I understand the frustration from the fans and I am not one to shy away from these occasions," said the winger. "We want to show the fans appreciation because we're going to need them. We can't do this without them. "It is frustrating. No one wants to lose games of football and we don't go out there to lose. "All I can say is, if I am chosen to play in the team, I'm going to try and lead by example and lift the crowd, "That's what I want to do, regardless if we're in the relegation zone or not."
