Robson, Palace are fragile

Brian Robson has told his Utd team to attack fragile Palace, he says Peter Taylor's position is under threat and if they can start the game well the Selhurst Park crowd will get edgy and that can only help Utd.

He told My Sport Today (the Star)'If we start well then hopefully the crowd down there will start to get edgy and we can take advantage of that.

'We were disappointed not to win at Blackpool and there are things that we can do much better.

'But that - and the fact that we have taken four points from our last two games - should be taken as a positive.

'If you average two points a game over the course of a season you know you are going to be right up there at the end.

'Palace had a great start but things haven't gone well for them since then.

Vital Quotes:

Simon Jordan told the Sun 'My team has to start winning, whether it's Coventry, Man City or Accrington Stanley.'

Crystal Palace Team News:

Palace midfielder Mark Kennedy (calf) misses out again and winger Paul Ifill (hamstring) also misses out. Ben Watson came through against Coventry unscathed, and full-back Matt Lawrence will be praying for a start.

Player to watch: Stewart Green
