SIMON GRAYSON said he was happy to get a point against high-flying Crystal Palace, but admitted it could have been all three.
“When you look back and reflect on the game, we had some good opportunities. Their keeper made some fantastic saves and we had a chance to score from the penalty and go one up,” said the manager.

“Even when it was 11 v 11, we had some decent opportunities and were playing well, attacking them and putting them under pressure.
“We went back to 4-4-2 (from 3-5-2 at Hull) and tried to stop Crystal Palace playing the way they can do.
“We also tried to impose our game on them and I think everyone saw glimpses of what is to come over the coming weeks.
“We have got players coming back from injury who made an impression.”
Palace manager Ian Holloway was fiercely critical of referee Graham Scott, who first sent off former Town loan man Damien Delaney, then awarded a penalty when Sean Scannell went down under Joel Ward’s challenge.
“I thought he was so quick to make a decision (on the red card) and I’ve seen the angle,” said Holloway.
“It wasn’t reckless or dangerous play and he wasn’t the last man.
“I just can’t believe how quickly, from that angle, that he made that decision.
“That’s a three-match ban and if he’s going to say that Delaney was the last man and he’s brought him down then I could accept that.

“But for a reckless challenge, not trying to play the ball, I don’t agree but who am I?
“I’m just the Palace manager. I might be biased mightn’t I?”
Former Blackpool boss Holloway added: “I thought Scannell deliberately played for the penalty.
“He could have easily taken another couple of steps and got on the end of it or whatever but such is life.”
