Crystal Palace boss Hodgson happy with Ayew debut

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson was happy with Jordan Ayew's debut in defeat to Southampton.

It was the striker's first appearance for Palace.

Hodgson said, “He did very well because it was his first game and he came to us very late without a particularly strong pre-season, so I thought he worked really hard for his 65 minutes.

"The main reason for taking him off was because he was tiring which is understandable, and with fresh legs on the bench I thought it was the right moment to introduce players into the game."
