Campbell: Warnock talk the key

Cape Town - Crystal Palace striker Fraizer Campbell insists Neil Warnock's half-time team talk inspired the team to a 2-0 win over Leicester.

A four-minute period shortly after the break at Selhurst Park saw Campbell put Palace in front on 52 minutes, before a Mile Jedinak header three minutes later secured the points for the London side.

And Campbell believes it was manager Warnock's rallying cry during the interval that got them the result over a spirited Foxes outfit following an uninspiring first-half showing.

"At half-time, I held my hands up because I was poor in the first half," Campbell told the London Evening Standard.

"The manager said I needed to be more lively and get myself running about, so that is what I did in the second half. I put myself about a bit more and it helps the lads behind me if I am closing people down quicker. That really caused them problems.

"We knew it was going to be cagey because Leicester came off the back of a great win against Manchester United. But we came out second half and had a real go at them.

"We have showed over the last few weeks that we’re really starting to find some consistency.

"I was delighted to score my first goal at Selhurst Park but more important is back-to-backs wins, which is difficult in this League."
