Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway is delighted with his side's 3-0 win over Derby.

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has heaped praise upon his side after they beat Derby County 3-0 this afternoon.

A brace from Glenn Murray and an Andre Moritz strike ensured that Palace remained top of the Championship table ahead of the likes of Cardiff City and Middlesbrough.

Holloway was delighted with the team's performance, particularly praising the structure and discipline of his players.

"We're starting to look a bit of a handful. Murray in the middle was awesome. His second goal was excellent. I'm delighted for Moritz too. We talked about getting in little pockets. The lads structure and discipline is fantastic," said Holloway.

"There are some fantastic players at this football club and they complement each other really well. It's been a big week for everybody at the club. I'm delighted to be part of it, delighted for Wilf (Zaha) and that England have recognised him.

"The whole setup here is right but the players have to go out there with a great crowd behind them, and get the win. You don't know where it's going to come from. That's the brilliance of this team."

Palace will be looking to continue their good form when they take on Leeds United next weekend.
