Holloway hit out at match officials following Palace's defeat against Tottenham, the former Blackpool man incensed by the referee's failure to spot what he viewed as a deliberate foul by Nacer Chadli on Stephen Dobbie.

Holloway is quoted as saying on the club's official Twitter feed: "I know what I meant on Saturday, it has cost me some money and I need to learn quickly how to deal with things that happen.

"All my life I have tried to be an ambassador for this game and I will continue to do so, but just need to learn when and what to say.

"I don't like losing and don't like not getting my own way. At times I get too

emotional and say too much. Oh well, it's cost me.

"I have been on the end of bad decisions in this league before that have cost us, but I have to let it go and move on."

Following the match, Holloway said: "It's going to be a long, hard season for me with these people (referees). I had this with Blackpool. Certain clubs get fouls and others don't."

Holloway has until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charges that were issued on Tuesday.
