Work on the redevelopment of the main stand at Selhurst Park could be pushed back according the Crystal Palace chairman.

Steve Parish has admitted discussions over the agreement that would see the ground increase its capacity by eight thousand to 34,000 are still ongoing as they negotiate the terms of the agreement to fund transport and community improvement initiatives.

Permission was initially granted by Croydon Council in April and work was hoped to begin in at the end of this season and completed in time for the 2021/22 season.

"The new main stand, we have got some issues," Parish told the ‘Five Year Plan’ podcast this week.

"There are final things to work out with the council, and they are being very constructive. There are no problems, it just takes longer than we thought it would.

"It might put back the start date slightly, but we are pushing on.

"Unfortunately these things do tend to slide, but we are on the front foot with it and we are doing our utmost to get the final agreements we need in place to get it done."

Parish remained positive that the club can still keep to their proposed timescale for the building work and that they will do all they can to stick to the original prediction.

"We were hoping at the end of this season, but it is drifting away from us slightly," he said.

"We still, if we can make it happen, then we will."

Another issue that Parish is keen to address is the matter of the moving of the Holmesdale Fanatics. He says he is coming to a conclusion with both parties involved and a decision for the ‘greater good’ will be announced soon.
