International break suits Palace boss Freedman

Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman is looking to the international break as an opportunity for his young players to catch their breath. Their eight-game unbeaten run finally came to a halt when they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Cardiff on Saturday.

And Freedman admitted: "We have young players and it has been relentless, so the break comes at the right time. We can rest up and go again.

"Cardiff was probably a game too far. We lacked a spark but performed well against an experienced side, and I believe we are on the right path for our long-term goal."
