Crystal Palace first-team coach Curtis Fleming insists he is focused on his job at Selhurst Park and not on a switch to Bolton.

Fleming has been tipped to join the backroom staff at the Reebok Stadium, following in the footsteps of Dougie Freedman and Lennie Lawrence, who left Palace to form the new management team at Bolton.

With Palace unveiling Ian Holloway as the successor to Freedman on Monday, Fleming says he will sit down and speak to the new Eagles boss, but he remains focused on helping his current club pick up three points in Tuesday's game against Ipswich Town.

"I will be sitting down with Ian Holloway in the next few days," Fleming told the Croydon Advertiser.

"It's all about preparation for training, matches and getting three points. It's not about me and where I'm going, that's just football. Nothing has changed and not much will change going into Ipswich on Tuesday.

"Ian Holloway will tell me I'm still contracted to Crystal Palace. He'll tell me what's happening, as Dougie Freedman has been trying to get me up to Bolton. So, at the end of the day, I'll be 100 per cent working to get results for Palace and then we'll see what happens after that."
