Holloway finds Owls loss 'hard to take'

Holloway finds Owls loss 'hard to take'

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway was a frustrated figure after seeing his promotion-chasing men go down 1-0 at Hillsborough.

The former Leicester City and Blackpool manager admitted defeat was hard to take after Leroy Lita bagged an 81st minute winner for the Owls.

He also admitted, however, that Dave Jones's men caused his troops plenty of problems, in attack and in limited his own team's chances.

'I'm finding it difficult to take that,' said Holloway.

'I thought that we were much better in the second half but fair play to them, they're on a good run and caused us all sorts of problems by closing us down and pressing us and we didn't seem to get into our passing rhythm.

'In he second half we settled down and it looked as though that if anyone was going to score it would have been us but unfortunately that wasn't the way it turned out.'
