Ledley Praises Williams And Hennessey

14 October 2015


Joe Ledley was full of praise for his Wales and Crystal Palace teammates Wayne Hennessey and Jonny Williams, following the Dragons' 2-0 home win over Andorra on Tuesday night.

The central midfielder was an unused substitute for the match in Cardiff, with Wales having already made history by qualifying at the weekend. Hennessey started - and played the full game - whilst Williams was withdrawn after 85 minutes, putting in an impressive performance.

Williams had struggled with injury throughout the summer, so his return to senior level football has been met with a lot of excitement from both Palace and Wales.

"Jonny played in the first couple of games and it's great to see him coming back after such a long injury spell out," Ledley said. "He's a key player for us, because of what he does, and hopefully we can keep him fit now so you can see the best of him."

Hennessey had little to do in Cardiff, with almost the entire game played inside Andorra's half, but he finished the qualification campaign having only conceded four goals in 10 matches.

"It was one of his easiest games today, but he's been fantastic from day one," reflected Ledley. "Since the first game he's been strong and dominated his box. We've only conceded four goals throughout qualification and that's fantastic."
