The Eagles were thumped 3-0 on the south coast in March but have the chance of revenge when the fierce rivals meet in the play-offs, starting at Selhurst on Friday night.

"We've achieved one thing which is getting in the play-offs and I'm totally and utterly focused on that," said Holloway.

"I'm very pleased for the group, they deserve it.

"But now we've got to work and make sure we come up with a plan that can stop their attacking football, stop them winning and then win one of the two games if we can against our arch rivals - which I know all about now."
