Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock knows Wayne Hennesey wants first-team football

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has admitted he understands how frustrated goalkeeper Wayne Hennesey must be with a lack of playing time, reports the Express.

“Wayne has been an absolute gem. He’s not knocked on my door once. He is a very good keeper and we are very fortunate to have him. At the moment he is playing in the cups which is no consolation to him. He could only go on for so long like that because Wayne will want to be a first team keeper as soon as possible,” he said.

The former Wolves shot-stopper is understudy to veteran Julian Speroni, who has shown little decline in his advancing age. The latter has said he will retire in the summer, but his form at 35 suggests he may well continue for another campaign.
