Leon Cort: 'I have nothing but good memories of Crystal Palace, but Charlton want revenge'

FORMER Palace defender Leon Cort says he enjoyed playing for the Eagles during his time at Selhurst Park, but admits he will be gunning for three points tomorrow with current club Charlton Athletic.

The 33-year-old spent nearly two seasons in SE25 between 2006 and 2008 before he was sold to Stoke City for £1.25m, having scored seven goals in 50 appearances for the Eagles.

"I have nothing but good memories at Palace," he told Advertiser Sport.

"I got player of the year in my first season and then the manager changed.

"The new one came in and wanted to do his own thing, but that's part of football.

"Palace beat us at our place so we obviously want to go there and get a bit of revenge.

"It should be a great game with a packed stadium – we're looking forward to it."

The Southwark-born stopper says the Addicks will need to keep a close eye on one player in particular, but says there are others who can do damage.

"Zaha is a player we'll have to watch out for," he said.

"It's a brilliant move for him to Manchester United and a wise choice. I think he'll learn the most there and he's gone back to Palace to keep playing football.

"But they do have other threats apart from him. They have Bolasie on the wing and also up front with Murray who has got 20-odd goals this season.

"He's a person in form and they've got players who can score all over like Damien Delaney at the back – we'll all have to be on guard."
