THERE will be no sentiment when it comes to who starts in goal for Crystal Palace this season, with the final decision falling in the hands of boss Tony Pulis. That's the view of co-chairman Steve Parish, who is hoping last season's Player of the Year Julian Speroni can keep up his level of performance. Wayne Hennessey is pushing for a starting position this season and played the first half of Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Brentford. However, Speroni's name could be heard from the Palace fans at Griffin Park following the decision to start with the Wales international instead. The new campaign starts in less than two weeks' time at Arsenal and both goalkeepers will have to be at the top of their game in the final pre-season match against Augsburg. "We'll have to wait and see, that's up to how people perform and the manager," Parish told the Advertiser. "Everyone knows their position has no guarantees, football is a tough, tough world. "Julian has got confidence in his ability and he's always proved himself to any manager he's had. "I am sure he will be doing everything he can to make sure he's a first team regular like he did last year. "In the end there's only one man who decides that and that's Tony."Follow your Crystal Palace reporter on Twitter @MR_LWMedia and the Advertiser sports desk @AdvertiserSport for news, interviews and matchday tweets.
