Taylor Fears Brunt

Taylor Fears Brunt

Crystal Palace boss Peter Taylor has insisted his men need to keep a watchful eye over Owls' in-form midfielder Chris Brunt when the two teams clash on Saturday.

The Northern Irish winger has enjoyed arguably his best season in professional football this term with a number of Premiership clubs showing an interest in his services both domestically and internationally.

And the Palace boss is hopeful that Brunt's heroics with Northern Ireland in midweek will have him 'tired' for the trip to Selhurst Park to take on his Eagles side.

'I'm delighted that Brunt has played has played two sets of 90 minutes for Northern Ireland so hopefully he might be a wee bit tired and been out celebrating their result against Sweden and doesn't play as well!' he told the official Palace website.

'He's got a tremendous left foot, probably one of the best around so he needs watching.'

The 22-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Northern Ireland's recent Euro 2008 qualifiying matches which saw them leap to the top of their group and with the winger only returning to training with his Wednesday colleagues on Friday, it's likely he won't be 100 per cent for the clash.

But Brunt will still be a huge threat for the Owls in London, as he looks to continue his impressive season which has seen him bag an impressive ten goals for the club this season.
