CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Browett is looking forward to a first Boxing Day fixture at home, since being part of the club takeover in 2010. Palace have been on their travels for the festive fixture on Boxing Day in recent seasons, with each of the last four games away on that day. But they have been handed a home match with Southampton this year and Browett says he is really looking forward to the occasion. "To be at home on Boxing Day is fantastic," he said. "It is the first since we took over the club in 2010 and it is something we really wanted. "Public transport is virtually non-existent on Boxing Day, and so it is great for the fans. "I think it is two of the last nine seasons now that we have had a home game on Boxing Day, and to be fair, it isn't too bad to have QPR away and Aston Villa as our two other games over Christmas."
