Irons duo on Palace game

AshtonDean Ashton and Tony Gale believe the Irons should beat Palace at Selhurst tomorrow (Sat).

Appearing on Sky Sports the pair were agreed that the match presented a very good opportunity for the team to collect their first three points of the season.

Deano said: “It will be about getting an early goal and quietening the crowd down. I spoke to Sam before last week’s game and he was discussing the team’s scoring problems.

“They created chances but didn’t take them so that remains a big question but I think they can win.”

Gale agreed this represents a “good chance” for the Hammers despite not believing last week’s performance against Spurs was all that special.

He said: “It’s difficult because you don’t want to lose the first game of the season.

“But I think he should have pushed on an extra striker and made our numerical advantage pay” (when they went down to ten men).
