Ian Holloway rues throwing away the lead again

IAN Holloway could not fault his side's performance in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest, but was left to rue throwing away another winning position.

Glenn Murray struck after eight minutes before Andy Reid equalised before the break, while Palace's top scorer thought he had nabbed the winner towards the end, only for Billy Sharp to grab a point at the death.

"I thought for 75 per cent of the time, we looked a very good side," said Holloway.

"The other 25 per cent of that was just before half-time when we went deep and couldn't get out. They scored in that period, and up until that point I thought we looked very good.

"We got ourselves into a winning position again and let it slip with five extra minutes added on.

"But I thought the work ethic, considering how long I've been here, they showed some fantastic skill and a bit more knowledge about what I want."

Meanwhile, reflecting on Murray's opening strike, the manager believes his players are starting to play how he wants them to.

"It takes a while to get an understanding of what I might want and how we might do it, and that was as good a goal as I've seen from us yet," he said.

"It was a brilliant move, they did what I asked them to do, and when you get into crossing positions, your full-back has got to gallop forward, Moxey did that and then you've got to get on the end of it.

"We did that, so it was just a fantastic goal. I thought our performance deserved three points."
