Dougie Freedman asks supporters of Crystal Palace to give his new side time to gel.

Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has urged the club's supporters to give his side time to settle.

There were a number of comings and goings at Selhurst Park during the pre-season period, which has resulted in the Eagles losing their opening two games of the Championship season.

Speaking after seeing his side lose 4-1 at Bristol City last night, Freedman has called upon the fans to be patient.

"There have been a lot of changes at our club during the summer and it will take a while for us to deal with that," Freedman told reporters.

"We just need a bit of time to develop together and improve as a team. It is always going to take a while to gel when you have got a lot of injuries and new faces to integrate."

Palace are currently bottom of the Championship.
