Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock frustrated by international break disruption after Burnley draw

CRYSTAL Palace boss Neil Warnock expressed his frustration with the international break after his side failed to find the net against Burnley.

The Eagles had plenty of chances against Sean Dyche's newly-promoted side but were in the end thankful to keeper Julian Speroni, whose late penalty save from Scott Arfield preserved a point in Warnock's first game back at Selhurst Park.

The Palace manager said he was happy to get something from the game - but admitted the fortnight away from Premier League action hadn't helped his preparations.

He told Sky Sports: "I didn't think we deserved to lose the game. We had plenty of opportunities in the first half and if one of those goes in, it's a different game

"Every point is vital so, like the last game against Newcastle, I'm disappointed we didn't win but in the end, it's a good point."

On the international break, he said: "All the lads were away so we couldn't work on anything pattern-wise.

"Bolasie came back at 10 o clock on Friday morning. That's ridiculous.... coming back a few hours after the game. But that's what we've got to get used to I suppose."

Warnock said he was happy with the home debuts of James McArthur and Wilfried Zaha - in his second coming at Palace - though he revealed the winger suffered an ankle injury on Thursday and had been a doubt for the game.
