Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway was left disappointed by the referee’s decision not to dismiss Hull defender Robbie Brady.

The Tigers defender was only booked for his late trip on Wilfried Zaha, despite being through on goal.

“They said his touch went too far and rolled to the goalie,” said Holloway. “Their fellow didn’t play the ball and that ruined his touch.

“As we all know, he would have probably outpaced him, got past him and then that would have been a goalscoring opportunity. So it was all a bit strange.”

Holloway felt his side grew in stature as the game progressed.

He said: “They had the better of the first half. I felt we didn’t get to grips with their shape and what they were doing.

“I’m relieved to be 0-0 at half-time and in the second half I thought the longer it went on, the more imposing we got. We looked pretty good as the game went on and that is full credit to the lads.”
