Palace skipper unhappy with ref

Mile Jedinak admits it is becoming difficult for Crystal Palace players to come to terms with recent refereeing decisions which have gone against the club.

The Eagles' skipper was sent off in the 3-1 reverse to Sunderland on Monday night after seeing his side have two legitimate penalty claims turned away by referee Phil Dowd.

I think we gave them two soft goals. Apart from that I thought we were really good.

I think they (the penalty claims) were both pretty clear to be honest with you, so, there's not a lot I'm going to comment on in that sense, but he (Dowd) made both decisions and we have taken the brunt of them. It was unfortunate - both times.

It's disappointing when you don't receive the decisions and particularly so early on, particularly when you're on top. You're not going to cry over that, but when they are that obvious it's a little bit difficult.

– Mile Jedinak

Hangeland's hips don't lie

Crystal Palace defender Brede Hangeland remains happy at Selhurst Park despite struggling to make the first team under Neil Warnock.

"I haven't played as much as I'm used to but I'm at an age now in my career that personal ambitions are not as high as they used to be, I just want to be a part of a good club and play when called upon but if not I'll support the lads from the sidelines," Hangeland told the club's official website.

"It's a different experience for me, I've been used to playing all of the games all of the time but now it's about being realistic.

"I played around 50 games a year for 10 years running and my hips seem to know so!"

Warnock appeared to infer that referee Craig Pawson was using double standards by not booking John Terry yet cautioning a Palace player for a similar offence.

The FA said in a statement: "It is alleged that Warnock's post-match comments constituted improper conduct in that they implied the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute, in contravention of FA Rule E3[1]."

Warnock has until 6pm on Monday to respond to the charge.
