Bolasie Reflects On Saints Setback

3 March 2015

Yannick Bolasie feels that his Palace side were unlucky not to get at least a draw from their trip to Southampton which ultimately saw them lose 1-0 at St Mary's Stadium.

Saints winger Saido Mane clinched the win for the hosts with a goal eight minutes from time, but Palace could have found themselves in front before then with Wilfried Zaha hitting the post.

Bolasie himself saw a couple of attempts saved by Fraser Forster in the second half, and he feels that had his side played like they did after half-time in the first half, then they could well have extended their unbeaten away run which now ends at seven matches.

Post-match, he said: “I think we struggled a little bit in the first half but in the second we kind of picked it up. Myself, Dwight, Punch and Wilfried were causing them quite a few problems and we were unlucky not to score.

“We just didn't start quick enough, Southampton did and maybe we could have made it a little bit trickier for them. We created quite a few chances and had some more right at the end so I think we were quite unlucky today.

“I think we deserved something from the game but but we have to move on now and look forward.

“The heads won't drop, Southampton are a good team but at the end of the day we've just got to look forward to the next one which is a big game against Queens Park Rangers.”
