Pulis angry at fixture pile-up

Tony Pulis has been left frustrated by a fixture pile-up that could see Crystal Palace's international players feature in three matches in just six days.

The Eagles do not face Swansea until Sunday, and mid-week international fixtures follow, with a number of Pulis' squad looking at playing another 90 minutes when Southampton visit Selhurst Park next Saturday.

I'm not pleased that we are playing late Sunday.

Then the lads go off to play on Wednesday and then come back to play Saturday.

I don't think that is what we need at the present moment, but it isn't just this football club, it is every football club where managers will be concerned about their players.

– Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis.
