Crystal Palace caretaker boss Keith Millen looks forward to new appointment
Palace’s stand in boss Keith Millen has said it has been a tough time for everyone at the club.
The Eagles lost 2-0 to West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday which left them rooted to the foot of the table.
Saido Berahino and Gareth McAuley both got on the scoresheet for West Brom who bounced back from their defeat to Liverpool last week.
Palace have lost seven on the bounce and are still looking for a new manager to replace Ian Holloway who left just over a week ago.
Millen, who could be in charge against Everton next week if a new manager is not brought in, said a fresh face is needed at the club.
He said: “It is a tough time for everyone at the club. The chairman is not going to rush into an appointment but the sooner the better with new ideas and a fresh voice.
“I have no complaints with the team spirit. The players have to keep on going.
“It is deja vu a little bit. We did a lot of good things. They punished us. To go 1-0 down at half time was disappointing.
"The players grew in belief second half. West Brom were happy to be 1-0 up and they countered. We had chances to equalise. Mile Jedinak's header was very close.
"They showed their quality with the corner, it was a good second goal for them.
"Fair play to our lads, they kept on going. We have to learn very quickly."
Millen also said he hopes Adlene Guedioura’s injury is not too serious. The Algerian midfielder was stretchered off in the first half.
He said: “Adlene looks like he has some kind of rib damage, we need to have a look at him but hopefully they are not broken.”
