Crystal Palace want to get good January signings despite good run

Roy Hodgson


Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson insists that his side should not feel comfortable after beating Burnley with eight first-team players out injured and made clear that their transfer ambitions are still the same.

Hodgson confirmed that they are still to make progress in their pursuit to sign Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Hodgson also said before their victory over Burnley that they are still in need of three or four signings even before Scott Dann, Joel Ward, Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jason Puncheon, Andros Townsend, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Connor Wickham got their injuries.

“Nothing changes,” Hodgson said.

“These games can be dangerous in that respect because if we start changing our targets and think everything is flying then no. There’s still only Christian Benteke [as a recognised striker].

“[Bakary] Sako is doing well up there, but he was a left winger.

“That is not a Premier League bench. I’m looking at other Premier League players who are experienced, on the bench, and hoping to get a chance. To say that it’s not a problem and you can continue with this run is ludicrous.

“We have got a goalkeeper who is doing well and another who has been a wonderful club servant but if one of them gets injured then we’ve only got one.”
