Tomkins: We must end our goal drought

Centre half James Tomkins says Crystal Palace must stop their scoring crisis soon.

The Eagles have not found the net at Selhurst Park this season after playing more than 360 minutes of football.

Despite dominating possession against Wolves on Saturday, Roy Hodgson's men ended up losing 1-0 to a second half strike.

Palace have one of the best defensive records in the division with nine goals conceded so far, but they have only scored five times from their eight matches.

"We're not scoring goals which is massive and we can't keep on relying on keeping clean sheets," the former West Ham defender told Palace TV.

"The Premier League is not like that, you play against good teams who are always going to get chances. They scored and we didn't that's the difference basically.

"They pressed a bit more [in the second half], they probably felt they could press us a bit higher up the pitch and they did. But I think we still created.

"We didn't play as well in the second half, don't get me wrong, but we still created a few chances and chances that sometimes we'd end up scoring.

"It's frustrating, we lose the game after probably dominating the game and football is like that."
