Mark Bright gives opinion on Lee Chung-Yong's Crystal Palace debut

Crystal Palace winger Lee Chung-Yong made his first appearance for the club against Hull City.

Mark Bright has told Crystal Palace's official site that Lee Chung-Yong had an impressive debut, despite his error playing a part in the Eagles' defeat.

Lee came off the substitutes' bench in the second-half for Palace and his debut hardly ended in ideal circumstances, after his wayward pass set up Hull City to score their second goal of the match.

It was the goal which put the game beyond reach for Palace but, despite this poor error, Bright was still reasonably impressed by the South Korean's showing.

"With the exception of the bad pass I thought Chungy showed us what a good addition he will be to the squad," he said.

There are high hopes for Lee at Selhurst Park and he could well turn out to be a bargain buy after signing from Bolton Wanderers in January.

At the moment the winger is still working his way back to fitness - after suffering a broken leg - but the hope is that when he is fully match-sharp he will be able to start proving his quality.

Lee has previously shown his class in the top-flight and his trickery and work-rate could be vital as Palace look to progress to the next level.

The Eagles have improved considerably under Alan Pardew and the aim for Lee will be to break into their team next season, when they will be chasing a place in the top-half.
