​Hodgson pleased with Crystal Palace second-half fight

Roy Hodgson is very happy with his side's fight, as Crystal Palace battled back against Newcastle to claim a 1-1 draw.

Palace were 1-0 down when Mohamed Diame managed to get a goal from a corner, but they soon got an equaliser through Luka Milivojevic.

Despite dominating the rest of the game, Palace did not have enough about them to get all three points. But Hodgson still saw some positives.

"I'm a little frustrated. At half-time I wasn't too happy with the way we played in the first half, even though we created two or three good chances I didn't think we played anything like I'd like to see the team play," he said.

"As a result you might have thought we would have been happy with a point but the way we played in the second half and the dominance we had in the end, I'm disappointed we didn't get more than one goal for those efforts.

"We were asking lots of questions of Newcastle in the second half but that ball wouldn't just go over the line for us during those goalmouth scrambles."
