HE may be 40-years-old, but Tony Pulis feels Kevin Phillips still has a part to play for Crystal Palace on the pitch in the Premier League. Following Ian Holloway's departure in October, Phillips assisted caretaker manager Keith Millen in a coaching capacity, leading to suggestions he may not be as involved on the pitch for the Eagles this year. But like Ryan Giggs, who proved on Wednesday night for Manchester United that he still has incredible ability despite turning 40 today, Pulis says Palace's play-off hero can still play a role this season. He said: "I am hoping Kevin will still help us on the pitch rather than off it. "I haven't really talked about [the coaching side of things] yet, but I certainly see him helping us on the playing side." Pulis said the coaching staff at the club, including Keith Millen, had been great in his first week though. "Keith [Millen] has been smashing, like I knew he would be. "They have all been very helpful and it has been a good couple of days this week and we are all looking forward to Norwich. "It will be a tough game, but every game is in the Premier League."
