Delaney was shown a straight red card with just 11 minutes gone at Selhurst Park following a challenge on Jermaine Beckford which the official deemed to be reckless.

"I thought he was so quick to make a decision and I've seen the angle," said Holloway.

"It wasn't reckless or dangerous play and he wasn't the last man.

"I just can't believe how quickly, from that angle, that he made that decision.

"That's a three-match ban and if he's going to say that Delaney was the last

man and he's brought him down then I could accept that.

"But for a reckless challenge, not trying to play the ball, I don't agree but who am I? I'm just the Palace manager. I might be biased mightn't I?"

Holloway was also annoyed at a first-half penalty award to Huddersfield after Sean Scannell was brought down.

"I thought Scannell deliberately played for the penalty. He could have easily taken another couple of steps and got on the end of it or whatever but such is life," he added.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
