CRYSTAL PALACE LEGEND GEOFF THOMAS HAS WRITTEN HIS LATEST COLUMN FOR THE ADVERTISER AHEAD OF SATURDAY'S GAME WITH LEICESTER CITY. LEICESTER will not be an easy game on Saturday, make no mistake about it. Their performance and win against Manchester United last week will give them such a lift going into the game and you hope they may even be a little complacent. Leonardo Ulloa has hit the ground running, and I have to admit I hadn't really heard too much about him previously or knew too much about his ability from playing at Brighton previously. He's proving to everyone he can play in the Premier League and he's doing a good job. He's a big and physical guy who knows where the goal is. However, Palace are unbeaten in the league under Neil Warnock. Tony Pulis built a side last season and you just wanted things to roll on into this season, but the choice of Neil was wise. People will remember him and have warmed to him. He has settled in and is doing a good job. Without too much upheaval, he has got the club back on the track the club were kind of already on. After this weekend, Palace play Hull. We learnt last year that certain games you call them six-pointers when you're always fearful of playing some of the clubs who aren't always going to be at the top. Leicester and Hull are games you know are going to be like that, battling all the way until the last five games of the season. Neil isn't daft. He knows these sort of games need as much attention as the games against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United. It's a case of looking after yourself and your own performance. At home I think you should play positively. I know Neil played five in midfield last Sunday, and the old days of playing 4-4-2 are in the past really. You look at people like Yannick Bolasie, Wilfried Zaha and Jason Puncheon. You have got quality out wide, it's how you use it. As long as you have players supporting one or two strikers, or getting numbers in the box, that's fine. Meanwhile, I am hoping to come down to Palace in October, possibly for the Chelsea game – I might cherry pick that one. Although West Brom away is a bit closer to me as well. I'll see what I can do to catch Palace in October.
