Holloway's bench was filled with youngsters for Saturday's goalless draw with the Premier League side at Selhurst Park.

Teenage midfielder Jonny Williams got a run-out having struggle with injuries during the first half of the season and 20-year-old winger Jason Banton came on for his debut in the second half.

Holloway could do without a replay with his side bidding for promotion, but he is determined to make the most of the trip as they attempt to secure a fourth-round visit from Manchester City.

"It was nice for Jason to get out there and nice for Jonny as well," he said.

"I'm delighted with the lads - that's probably the youngest bench I've ever had.

"Now we've got another game away, where it's notoriously difficult, which will be fantastic experience for my lads. The confidence is starting to come."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
