On Demand: Allardyce Press Conference

Sam Allardyce held his pre-match press conference at USM Finch Farm on Thursday afternoon, ahead of Everton's Premier League encounter with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Allardyce is preparing for the visit of his former club to Goodison Park at the weekend, when he will be targeting a fourth home victory as Toffees boss. Key topics included:

- Calling on the Blues to extend their positive home form under his management which has brought three wins and two draws from six matches.

- Accepting last Saturday's display at Arsenal was not good enough, but focusing on Everton's ability to bounce back from going behind this season.

- Confirming Leighton Baines (calf) and Maarten Stekelenburg (hernia) are close to returning to training.

- Praising the fine work of Everton in the Community as the charity celebrates its 30th birthday this weekend.
