Alan Pardew wants me to make things happen, says Palace midfielder

PALACE midfielder Barry Bannan is enjoying life under Alan Pardew, after starting the last two games under the new manager.

Bannan started the game against Tottenham last weekend after an impressive display in the FA Cup against Dover Athletic, and even though he was substituted at half-time against Spurs, it didn't put too much of a dampener on the Scotsman.

The former Aston Villa man says Pardew wants him to "make things happen" and revealed the new boss wants Palace to be more offensive rather than soak up pressure from opposition sides.

"He also wants us to have a right go at teams," said Bannan.

"With the old manager it was more about keeping our shape and then pass to the wingers and hope they go forward and do something.

"That wasn't working so we've been trying to press teams and having teams defend rather than us sitting back.

"Everyone in the dressing room would rather do that and score goals. The gaffer just wants me to try and make things happen for the team."
