Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman is desperate for a home draw in the Carling Cup quarter-finals after defeating Southampton2-0 on Tuesday night at Selhurst Park. The Eagles are now in the the last eight for the first time in eight years.

"I hope it's a home draw against a big club," he said. "If we can get a home draw it will be a big advantage for us.

"We are pleased, it was a hard-fought win, we had to defend for most of the game.

"We gave a lot of respect to Southampton, who are a very good team. But we defended well and that enabled us to go on and get the goals."
