Crystal Palace pair Chamakh, Moxey ok after weekend row

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway insists Marouane Chamakh and Dean Moxey are fine following their bust-up on the weekend.

The pair clashed in the dressing room at half-time of the loss to Southampton after former Arsenal striker Chamakh had been booked for diving but Holloway suggests it has all been sorted out.

"I don't think I can repeat what I said at half-time, but I nearly took my jacket off to both of them," he said.

"You have to deal with things. I've since called them in and showed them the incident and asked what it was about. It was amicable in the end but passions flare up when you are not winning.

"The passion was there and I think it shook everybody. It rocked this club, we are built on that togetherness.

"But I've watched the incident and spoken to Chamakh and his explanation is actually quite good.

"He headed it and was just looking at the ball, and he said if he'd been at Arsenal he would have got a penalty. But I still think he should have shot."
