Williams Sends Wigan Out Of Carling Cup

Crystal Palace Manager Dougie Freedman has hailed second year Apprentice Jonathan Williams as a ‘very good prospect’ after he hit the winning goal in Palace’s 2-1 Carling Cup win over Wigan, last night.

Darren Ambrose had opened the scoring for the home side as Palace took advantage of Roberto Martinez’s decision to rest several first-team players.

Midfielder, Williams, then hit a 20 yard strike on the hour to ensure that ex-Eagle, Ben Watson’s, 90th minute goal was little more than a consolation.

After the game Freedman paid tribute to the youngster.

“I’m not surprised at all by his (Williams’) progression,” he told the clubs website.

“He was with us a bit last year in training, and every day this year and is a very good prospect for us. Wilf Zaha as well, who is now understanding the game, and it’s great to see and I hope the fans enjoy these young players.”

“If I didn’t think they were ready I wouldn’t play them, but it’s good for the club.”

“Williams is a fantastic prospect, physically he’s got a long way to go but he’s got a football brain which I really enjoy watching.”
