Hodgson hunting for striker after 1-0 win in FA Cup
FOOTBALL- 6 January 2019 13:19 GMT
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has set his sights on a striker after his side escaped with a 1-0 win over Grimbsy Town in the FÁ Cup and missing out on Dominic Solanke.
“Getting a striker is obviously something we would like because as we’ve seen once again, we can’t do much more in terms of dominating games,” Hodgson said.
“It’s pretty obvious that if we had that person who score goals from nothing, or scores goals from half-chances, we’d be a lot higher up the Premier League and would have won our FA Cup game a lot earlier.
“It’s early days in the transfer window and everybody knows this is a tough transfer window because clubs aren’t eager to let players go if they’re good enough.
“You’re looking for the rare pearl – someone who is good enough who will make us better who at the same time for some reason is being released by their club.”
