Crystal Palace joint-chairman Steve Parish has given his backing to manager Ian Holloway despite the club's poor start to the season.

Holloway earned great praise for guiding Palace into the Premier League last term, but he and his team have found life tough since.

Holloway's position has come under scrutiny after a run of just one win in six games but he retains the backing of Parish.

"I believe in the manager and I believe in his ability to create a winning team," the Palace joint-chairman told the South London Press.

"We need to keep the ball better. You can't keep giving it away in this league because, unlike in the Championship, you won't get it back.
