Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has admitted that the club may not replace Ian Holloway until the next international break.

The Eagles chief has endured a frustrating time trying to bring a new manager, failing to come to an agreement with initial frontrunners Martin O'Neill and Tony Pulis.

Having failed to make a swift appointment, and encouraged by Keith Millen's job as caretaker against Arsenal last week, Parish and Chief Executive Phil Alexander will now spread their net wider in hope of finding a manager to keep Palace in the Premier League.

"We want to try and go about the process quietly. It is ongoing," Parish told the South London Press.

"We've seen various people and we're carrying that on.

"In an ideal world we will have got someone in by Monday or Tuesday so that they get to work with the players before the international break.

"But if we can't get them in by then it will probably be during the international break."
