JULIAN Speroni says the first goal was key against Hull City on Saturday and that he didn't really have much to do until the hosts opened the scoring. Palace failed to perform to the same level previously against Everton and Leicester City, coming away from the KC Stadium with a 2-0 defeat. "The manager was pleased with the attitude but it was one of those games where we had some chances then they scored," Speroni told the Advertiser. "That first goal was key and then we were chasing the game. To concede a second goal, it was game over. "Before the first goal I hardly touched the ball. It was frustrating for me as a goalkeeper. "I thought we played well and under control, it was just the first goal which changed everything. We had to then go forward more and take some risks and in the end we paid for it. "Yannick Bolasie had a very good shot which the goalkeeper made a good save from but nothing went for us in the end."
