Crystal Palace captain Wilfried Zaha has welcomed back manager Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson has returned to the Eagles after the dismissal of Patrick Vieira.
Zaha said, â€œ[His message has been] mainly that you don't become awful players overnight. Just keep that hope, remember that you're good players, and go into the games confident.
â€œHe's come in and tried to give that confidence to the players. Our team is young. We've gone through a rough spell. It's easy to start pointing the finger and blaming each other, but he's come in, and this week has just been a confidence week.
â€œ[We're] doing drills for the attackers where we're scoring lots of goals, and for the defenders where they're tightening things up and working together â€“ just the basics, so you get a bit of confidence leading up to the game.
â€œThat's what he's done: give the boys hope. 'You're still very good players and one win can transform everything.' That's what he's done."
