CRYSTAL Palace defender Martin Kelly says that conceding to more set-pieces on Saturday was "not good enough" and wants the team to replicate their form shown under Tony Pulis. Under the former boss, Palace conceded just once from a set-play, while inside the opening two games so far this season they have conceded four out of five from those situations. However, Kelly says he and the players are not too down and are working on fixing the problem. "We didn't get off to a good start and the gaffer felt were second best to most challenges," he said. "We came out in the second half but then we go and conceded another sloppy goal. "It was a bright start but they were dictating play and it's not what we should have been doing at home. "We should have been attacking the play and creating chances ourselves. "We had a good chat at half-time and got the goal back. Of course, no one likes losing but we have got a team here that try and never give up. "We're all in it together. From set-plays, we got punished for it. It's not good enough when the team has been so good at that. "We need to become stronger and better to get it back to the way it was, because that's what we're known for. "The lads' morale wasn't down, it was just simply down to a bad start and being second best to most challenges. "We have Walsall first then Newcastle away to put things right." And Kelly is hoping the squad can put a smile back on the fans' faces in tonight's Capital One Cup game at the Bescot Stadium. "Every game is different but we go to Walsall looking to win," he said. "It's a Cup game and for all the travelling supporters they deserve for us to put a team out that is going to win the game."
