Millen Pleased With Zaha Goal

11 January 2016


Keith Millen was pleased to see Wilfried Zaha bag the winner for Palace at Southampton on Saturday, as the Eagles got back to scoring form, seeing off the Saints 2-1 in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Joel Ward had opened the scoring for Palace in the first half after some good work from Jason Puncheon before Southampton drew level, however Zaha was on hanf to volley home the winner in the second period, following more good work from Puncheon and Fraizer Campbell.

Millen was delighted to see the Eagles' forward players showing some end product, which has been sorely lacking in the league recently.

"It was great for Wilf to score, it's great," he said. "We need more people scoring goals, we've not scored enough goals throughout the squad and for Joel Ward, as a full back, to score and then Wilf, it capped off a good weekend.

"End product from all our attacking players, whether it's creating goals or scoring goals," Millen highlighted as an area to improve. 

"You can see how much it means to Wilf when he scores goals. We do a lot of work with him in training and it was pleasing for him [to score on Saturday]. That's where we've been lacking, it's the only thing - maybe - people can criticise us for: our forward players haven't scored enough goals."
