Hodgson happy with attacking options


Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is happy with his attacking options ahead of the visit of Tottenham to Selhurst Park.

The Eagles suffered a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last weekend and Hodgson has the same squad available ahead of Saturday's clash against the north London outfit.

While Christian Benteke remains injured, Hodgson has plenty of options upfront and is confident they will start delivering in front of goal.

"There's nothing special to report at the moment, though we’ve got one more training session left of course. We haven’t recovered any injured players but then we haven’t lost anybody either at this moment in time," Hodgson said.

"We have Benteke injured but he'll soon be back. We have (Alexander) Sørloth, we have (Jordan) Ayew, we have Wilf (Zaha), and we have Andros Townsend so we have forwards at the club.

"I can't in any way criticise or complain about what the players are trying to do either in training or in matches and I'm sure that they (goals) will come when the ball goes in for us. But, as I say, we've scored three in the last two games against Arsenal and Chelsea away."
