I'll give everything whenever I play and take my chance, says Crystal Palace defender

CRYSTAL Palace defender Adrian Mariappa is hoping to take his chance back in the starting XI after coming on after just 12 minutes at Hull City on Saturday. The former Reading man has found himself on the substitutes' bench in recent weeks, with manager Neil Warnock preferring Martin Kelly at right-back. However, with Scott Dann injuring his medial ligaments in his right knee, it could mean Mariappa will find himself starting the next few games depending on the scan results his team-mate receives on Monday. "Whenever I play, wherever I play, I'll always give everything," the defender told the Advertiser at the KC Stadium. "Martin is like most full-backs out there like myself and Joel Ward – we all started out at centre-halves. "I thought Martin did well when he went in there. Wherever we play, if we're not playing, all the lads are pulling in the same direction. "But when you do play you want to take your chance. As a sub you've got to be ready and warm up well. I just went straight into it. "Hopefully it's not too serious with Scott. He's been a massive part of what we've achieved at this club in the last year. "Hopefully it's not too bad for him and he's back playing sooner than later. "I haven't played too much this season yet but I thought in the first half we linked up well down the right, like we did in the latter part of last season. "That was pleasing and a bit better quality on the crossing and it may have come to something. "That's positive from my part of view going forward."
