Palace boss retains Ambrose for spot kicking duties

Darren Ambrose scored a goal but missed a penalty for Crystal Palace in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Reading at Selhurst Park. However, Place boss Dougie Freedman has no intention of relieving the player of penalty taking duties.

"I know how Darren is feeling, he scored a fantastic goal and then missed a penalty.

"Make no mistake, Darren Ambrose will take the next penalty, and if he misses he'll take the one after that.

"He is one of the best strikers of the ball at the club.

"There is no blame at all, he is the kind of guy who next week will stand up, take the next penalty and score it."
