Between these two matches Crystal Palace changed coach. Warnock was sacked after the defeat of “saints” and now the bank is Keith Millen’s team has not changed much, only striker Campbell was left on the bench. With Millen Palace was a team a little closed without a classic striker and has thus obtained a valuable point. It is very possible that Londoners manager now use the same tactic and try to return home with one more point.
