Crystal Palace boss confirms EFL Cup team changes at Bristol City

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson during the Premier League match at St James' Park, Newcastle.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson will make changes for tomorrow night’s EFL Cup tie at Bristol City.

The likes of Wilfried Zaha, Mamadou Sakho and Luka Milivojevic look unlikely to be risked at Ashton Gate ahead of Saturday’s crunch Premier League clash with fellow strugglers West Ham United.

Hodgson’s first victory as Eagles chief came in the EFL Cup with Bakary Sako’s goal defeating Huddersfield 1-0 and putting the South Londoners into the last 16.

“Hopefully there will not be wholesale changes but we have got very good players on the bench,” the ex-England boss told www.eagles.cpfc.co.uk.

“This is a chance for them to show they are every bit as good – if not better – than the ones I have chosen. I’m determined to take a very strong team to Bristol. We’ll be working very hard and trying very hard to win the game.

“I’ve got a group of players here who haven’t had a chance to show what they can do and they deserve it.”

    How can any team go into the season with only one central forward ? All we here from Parish we have to sell before buying, Wickhamis a good Championship player like Gayle. CP leave it to the last minute to buy players in the transfer window. Parish is totally to blame if CP go down this season.

  2. So we have a chance to put us into the quarter finals and we are going to play a weeknd team. This is a perfict excuse to a good win and boost the players confidence before the weekend.
    Wining the ELC would put us into Europe and help us attract better players and also convince our better players to stay let alone give us fans something to get excited about.

    Please take this competition seriously as our first team can beat any team on our day and Just to win something is all we palace fans want.
