Palace boss Warnock excited by Kelly potential

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is pleased with the form of former Liverpool defender Martin Kelly.

Warnock, searching for positives after defeat to Hull City, highlighted the performance of Kelly. The former Liverpool defender moved from right-back to a central role after Scott Dann was injured in the 12th minute.

"He's such a good pro," Warnock said. "There's a lot more to come from him, I think. He's looking a little bit sharper, now he's had a few games under his belt.

"Kenny Dalglish thinks that's he's best position - right-side centre-half - and I don't think he did anything wrong. I thought he was super."
