Holloway: Time to Start Another Run.

After seeing his side's unbeaten run which stretched back to September finally come to a halt at Elland Road, Ian Holloway was optimistic his side would bounce back ahead of two big games in the coming week.

Palace lost 2-1 to Leeds but with a trip to Hull on Tuesday and the derby against Brighton next Saturday, Ollie is hopeful his side can begin a new run soon as their promotion push continues.

"I think my team did our supporters proud, even at the end we carried on pushing forward and threw everything at them but they managed to deal with it," he said. "I thought we deserved at least a point but sometimes football isn't fair. Now we'll move on to another away game at Hull, I'd like to smash up that computer that comes up with the fixtures, and then we have Brighton; it's wonderful this league isn't it?

"What we have to do now is start another run, it was absolutely magnificent to go 14 games unbeaten. We worked out we could have 10 defeats before the end of the season and still get promoted but anyone in this league is capable of going on a run, you only have to look at Reading last season and see where they are now.

"I'm sure Neil will be proud of his lads, they were up for it and the new lads did well, and to be fair Jerome Thomas caused us some problems. 

"Damien Delaney was booked for diving and I didn't like it as it looked like he went down too easy and I'll be telling him that, but I don't think Wilfried Zaha did to be perfectly blunt. However I don't think that had anything to do with the result, Leeds got on the end of two chances in our boxes and we tried to but they managed to keep it out."
