Warnock hopes for off day
07 Nov 2008 - 14:11:26
Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock is hoping Clinton Morrison has an off-day when he comes up against his former Eagles team-mates on Saturday.
Palace take on Morrison's new club, Coventry City, at the Ricoh Arena just three months after the striker left Selhurst Park.
Morrison, who was Palace's top-scorer last season, opted to leave on a free transfer despite being offered a new contract.
"It'll be good to see Clinton," Warnock told the Croydon Guardian. "He's a character and he's part of the club here and will never be forgotten but I just hope he has an off-day in front of goal.
"He hasn't played much there but he's got his chance in the last few games and scored.
"Clinton feeds off goals and he'd score double figures even for us but I thought he deserved a bit more respect than that.
"That's why I told him which way we were playing this year and left it up to him. It made him think about the system we were playing and it doesn't suit him.
"I'd have still liked him in the squad but Clinton's got to be playing every week."
