• Allardyce talks of resistance to his methods among Palace squad
• ‘Where I am struggling is the players keeping the message’
Sam Allardyce has expressed frustration that Crystal Palace’s players have yet fully to embrace his methods and has reminded them that, if they take his advice on board, the club can still clamber free of the bottom three.
Palace have secured only four points from eight games since Allardyce replaced Alan Pardew just before Christmas and go into Saturday’s Premier League home game against Middlesbrough 19th in the table. The squad have had a fortnight to prepare and will seek to erase the memories of the 4-0 thrashing endured against Sunderland in their last home fixture, with Allardyce having outlined what is required if he is to preserve his record of never having been relegated from the top flight.
