Moxey pleased to see Wilbraham return

21 January 2014 18:35

Crystal Palace defender Dean Moxey has expressed his delight at team-mate Aaron Wilbraham's return to action.

Wilbraham came on as a second-half substitute in Palace's 1-0 win over Stoke City last Saturday, his first appearance since being left out of the London club's 25-man Premier League squad, announced back in September.

Moxey was quick to praise the 34-year-old for his mentality and the quality he displayed in Palace's sixth league win of the campaign.

"It's nice (to see Wilbraham return)," Moxey told The Croydon Advertiser. "He was a big part of our (promotion from the) play-offs last season and it was hard for the lads not to see him in that 25.

"He's such a good lad to have around the place, and you saw the quality he has when he came on.

"He held the ball in the corner for around 20 minutes I think. He's another lad who has not been in the 25 but has not been a bad influence on anyone.

"He's been supporting the lads and has been coming to games.

"That's the type of person he is; he would never slag anyone off or wouldn't do anything bad against the club."
