Crystal Palace became the first team in Premier League history to lose their first five games without scoring as Roy Hodgson's tenure began with a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
|He's a much better player than he's been able to show in the games because we see his accuracy every day in training,
Hodgson said. But for goal-scorers and centre-forwards, confidence does play a big part.
Martin is an excellent referee who refereed very well,
Getting a striker is obviously something we would like because as we've seen once again, we can't do much more in terms of dominating games,
We make no bones of the fact we are looking for someone to lead our line and score some goals for us,
