Holloway praises Watford boss ahead of Friday night clash
CRYSTAL Palace boss Ian Holloway has praised Gianfranco Zola ahead of the Eagles' match against Watford tomorrow night.
The Hornets have surprised the Championship this season by shooting up into the play-off places, with many of their loan signings from abroad playing a key role, especially Matej Vydra and Almen Abdi.
"It must be difficult for Gianfranco Zola because you can only play five loans in one game," Holloway told Advertiser Sport.

"They look like a foreign team and a total footballing team. To change it so quickly is incredible and I think Gianfranco has done a fantastic job to how they played last year.
"He's got the benefit of how he played and how he was brought up to play, which is to pass the ball and move.
"The way they want to pass and move to close to a Premier League team, so it's going to be really tough, they're on a great run, but I believe we can go there and hurt them."
