'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Holloway Pleased With Win, But Looking For More.

Ian Holloway saw his side beat Bristol City 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night, but he still believes his side can show some improvement.

Glenn Murray and Stephen Dobbie scored in either half giving the home side a lead which City were just not able to grab back although they did manage a late goal courtesy of Palaces Jonathan Parr.

The defeat leaves City at the bottom of the table while the Eagles are still pushing for promotion in the play-off places.

And although Holloway thought they had more to offer, he did single out special praise for their first goal.

He told reporters: 'Some of the combination play is now coming off. It was a great finish for the first goal.

'We flowed after the first goal, from a great pass from Mile Jedinak. It was a classic pass and finish and as good as Charlie Adam used to hit them.

'It was quite bizarre at the end of the game with the own-goal, and if we hadn't got the second goal will be devastated.

'The fizz wasn't there, but it was good enough in another hard game. But that is six points from two games and a long way to go yet.'
