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

Dougie's Decree: We Deserved The Point

Dougie Freedman walked out of the Walkers Stadium last night delighted with the point as he believed we thoroughly deserved a share of the spoils.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC the gaffer described the match as a good point, and he was pleased with our overall performance and that the game plan worked out well.

'It's a very good point, we deserved a point, we didn't nick a point. It was an all round good performance.'

Freedman admits that at the moment it's only really points that matter, especially with our away form, but he's was delighted to see us again take the game to the opponents and put in a good shift. Gaining the point as well is doubly rewarding because plenty of times this season we've played well away but come home with nothing. However, the next two matches against Scunthorpe and Doncaster will shape the relegation battle now.

'Scunthorpe and Doncaster will be crucial to our season and where we finish. There's no doubt about that. I think we've enough in our locker to get the vital points we need.'

Some eyebrows may have been raised at the squad selection, but Freedman adds he was delighted with the impact of the players selected and he believes they stuck to the gameplan well and could well have been 2-0 up such was the effort put in.

'The plan was to take the game to Leicester with the pace we had up top, unsettle them in the first half and in the end we were unfortunate not to be two ahead. I used Scannell and Zaha to make the most of their pace and I know what they are capable of. It was no gamble as I knew what each could give me.'

The one sore point from the game was the late red card for Zaha. Freedman offered no comment in his after match interview as he said he didn't see it, so will confirmed he will find out what happened first before speaking on the issue.
