Poor away form puzzles Ollie

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway admits his side’s away form is

a cause for concern, saying: “We have to sort it out.”

The Eagles have not won on the road since they beat Peterborough

in November, a winless run that was stretched to 10 matches by

Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

However, they remain just four points off the automatic

promotion places and Holloway expects plenty of twists and turns

before the end of the season.

He said: “It’s an unpredictable league. I think Reading were

sixth this time last year.

“But we have to get our away form sorted out as we haven’t won

since Peterborough and that was thanks to two late goals, coming

from behind.

“There’s no reason why we can’t win away. If you read the stats

we were pretty comfortable but we didn’t turn it into a goal. It

was just the last pass that let us down.”
