Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney has praised Bournemouth ahead of his side's clash with The Cherries on Boxing day.
“We’ve had a couple of team meetings on Bournemouth and looked at what their strengths are and what they'll be looking to do, and we've discussed what we’ve got to do to limit their effectiveness. They’re a very good side and have a really good team spirit which has been shown in the results they’ve got in the last few games,” Delaney said, Crystal Palace's official website reports.
The Eagles are currently on a good run winning three and drawing one out of their last four ties.
“Our last three games have been pretty tight and we haven’t really been at the top of our game. But we’ve shown resilience and been able to come out on top when things are tight, and Saturday’s game is going to be no different in terms of two sides looking to get a win.”
