Hodgson calls for more from Zaha
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson feels Wilfried Zaha must continue to deliver goals if the side are to rise up the table.
The Ivory Coast international bagged himself a brace in the 4-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday to help the Eagles move six points clear of the relegation zone.
Hodgson claims Zaha has been vowing to score more goals for Palace and the experienced manager is hoping the winger can kick on in that department for the remainder of the campaign.
"It [scoring] has been something he’s been talking about and promising that he’ll do and thinks he needs to do,” Hodgson told club website.
“He thinks that he should be scoring more goals but that’s the first time he’s scored in three consecutive games. I thought he took both goals well.
"The first one needed a solid side foot. Schmeichel was ready on the line but it was close and a solid strike would score and he got it.
“The other one which put the game totally to bed was a really good strike at goal. It was the sheer power which beat Kasper Schmeichel on that occasion."
