Ian Holloway let his excitement at becoming Crystal Palace manager show as his new charges comfortably beat Blackburn Rovers 2-0.

Holloway was unveiled to the crowd at half-time, having joined from Blackpool on a four-and-a-half year deal earlier in the day, and watched from the stands as Glenn Murray's double strike moved the Eagles up to third in the table.

Holloway was delighted with what he was seeing when he spoke to the crowd. "How lucky are we to see a team like this? It's fantastic," he said. "I think I have got goosebumps on the back of my neck to get an opportunity like this."
