Bolasie: More To Come From Murray

3 March 2014

Yannick Bolasie hailed the impact of Glenn Murray in the 1-1 draw with Swansea City on Sunday - and the Palace winger believes there is more to come from the duo as we enter the business end of the season.

Bolasie's tireless second half display was a key part of the Eagles second half revival, which saw them come from a goal down to earn a point against Garry Monk's side. 

The Democratic Republic of Congo international was buoyed by his performance following a half time change of tactics.

He said: "It was a very good point for us. Swansea are a tough team. We knew that they would keep the ball well, so to come back and get the point and have Glenn getting his first goal in the Premier League, there are good signs for us. 

"We changed the tactics, but it was only a minor change but it seemed to help us a lot and I got on the ball a bit more and ran at their full back. 

"That's my game - sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn't, but I've just got to keep going. In the second half I showed that once I got into the game I was on top of it.

"But I think everyone put in a solid performance. We had them on the run in that second half."  

Speaking of Glenn Murray's late equaliser, Bolasie said: "I'm very pleased for him. It's a good time for him to be coming back in and playing.

"I know his game, he knows mine and hopefully towards the end of the season we can see that combination coming into play a bit more.

"I had no doubts when Glenn stepped up to take the penalty - 30 goals last season, he was always going to find the back of the net."

Bolasie believes the squad will already be looking forward to Saturday's match against Southampton after defeats for Norwich and Cardiff on Sunday gave them extra reason to celebrate.
"It's a mini-league, as I've said before," the 24-year-old said, "and we are looking down at them at the moment. Hopefully we can carry on the good form and stay above them. 

"Southampton is another big game for us and I think the boys will be looking forward to that."
