Palace boss Freedman stays grounded after amazing Man Utd shock

Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman remained grounded after their Carling Cup shock at Manchester United.

Darren Ambrose and Glen Murray's goals sandwiched a Kiko Macheda penalty for United.

Freedman, who has earned plaudits for his work since taking over a cash-strapped club midway through last season, said: "It's a wonderful night for the club, especially given the position we've been in the last few years.

"To play at Old Trafford tonight, we're privileged, the lads learnt a lot from tonight.

"I think we deserved it. We played some stuff, some good football.

"We thought if we came with a gameplan that could be stuck to and everybody played eight, nine, 10 out of 10 we could do it."
