Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway is determined to bring in some new faces to his squad following Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup failure.

The Eagles were beaten 2-1 by League One side Bristol City in the second round of the competition which has prompted Holloway to focus his attentions on strengthening his Premier League squad.

"It is obvious isn't it? We need some widemen and we need to address the goals and that is what we'll be doing,” said Ollie.

"The main thing for me is that we've lost two of our main players who were really important for us last year in Glenn Murray with his injury and Wilf (Wilfried Zaha who has joined Manchester United).

"And you add the new lad I bought in Jerome Thomas and Yannick Bolasie to that and we aren't quite the same. It makes a huge difference.

"It certainly will be a busy rest of the week. I don't know where it will go and who we will end up with but we will get some - you can see we need them.

"I can't tell you how many, it will be quite a few. I've got loads of plates spinning but it is so hard to get deals over the line these days, even in the Premier League. The closer it gets to that window the prices go up.

"I'll try and do what I can and the chairman is helping me as much as he can. Hopefully at the end of it all we'll have some sort of resemblance of a squad that can galvanise and do a little bit better."
