De Silva looking to impress

Kyle De Silva is hoping he can impress Ian Holloway during his

spell at Barnet on loan from Crystal Palace.

The teenage midfielder has not featured for Palace since

Holloway took charge at Selhurst Park but is hoping first-team

action for the Bees between now and the end of the campaign can

improve his prospects with the npower Championship club.

De Silva must first help move Edgar Davids’ side away from the

relegation places, a challenge he is relishing.

He told Barnet’s official website: “It is very hard to break in

and make an impression when the team are flying. Hopefully I can do

that whilst on loan.

“It will be great to get some first-team action and I am really

looking forward to making an impact at Barnet.

“The team have picked up some good results lately so hopefully I

can help keep that up. I am very grateful I have been given the

opportunity to come here.”
