BBC Sport - Crystal Palace v Aston Villa: Joe Cole expecting tough encounter

Palace a hard place to go - Cole

Ahead of Tuesday's visit to Crystal Palace, Aston Villa's Joe Cole tells BBC WM that the home fans make Selhurst Park a tough place to go, as Villa go in search of a first win in 10 games.

"It's a real hard place to go as the fans make it difficult for you," said Cole, scorer of Villa's goal in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Burnley.

"But they've got a good side too. In the likes of Jason Puncheon, Yannick Bolasie and Marouane Chamakh, they've got players that can hurt you."
