CRYSTAL Palace star Wilfried Zaha admits the Eagles can't keep coming back from losing positions to win football matches.
Following the 3-2 win at Burnley last week, Palace recorded the same result against Southampton on Saturday in the FA Cup after a breath-taking first half.
Zaha performed superbly again, notably on the right, with some intelligent play and also had a big say in Yaya Sanogo's first goal for the club since the 21-year-old signed on loan from Arsenal.
"I am just glad we managed to get back into the game really, and every time we broke forward we looked like we were going to score," Zaha said post-match at St Mary's.
"I managed to get into space and run at them too. We gave sloppy goals away at the beginning but we can't keep doing this every game.
"The opposition will just get better in the Premier League and they will punish us more.
"We're obviously scoring goals but we went through a period where we couldn't score at all.
"Right now, if we're going to carry on scoring goals, we need to tighten up the little things because there are going to be teams out there who will out-score us.
"It can't work like that every game so the gaffer is going to tighten up on certain little things."
