Competition with Jordan Ayew good for Palace - Connor Wickham

Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham maintains that battling Jordan Ayew and others for the attacking role of the team is a good situation in their quest to avoid the drop zone.

Wickham who scored against Tottenham in the FA Cup last week indicated that the competition amongst the strikers helps everyone to give his best on the field.

“It’s good [competition]. It is not just Wilfried and Andros, we can all share the load to avoid the drop,” Wickham was quoted as saying by Football.London.

“We’ve got Jordan [Ayew], Christian [Benteke] has just come back and myself, we look strong all the way from back to front,” he added.

Palace are now 15th on the league log with 23 points after twenty-four games.
