UPDATE: Curtis Fleming Acting As Crystal Palace Caretaker

Dougie Freedman landed his second-in-command just a few moments ago but head first team coach Curtis Fleming is not coming over quite yet. He will take over Lennie Lawrence's first team caretaker duties at Crystal Palace. The London club released an official statement on the state of affairs:

Crystal Palace Football Club can confirm that assistant manager Lennie Lawrence has today joined Bolton Wanderers. The board of the club would like to put on record their thanks to Lennie for all his efforts during his time at Palace.

The board are continuing their search for managerial replacements for Lennie and Dougie Freedman.

Curtis Fleming will take charge of first team affairs assisted by development coach Jamie Fullarton and first team captain Paddy McCarthy.

This leaves some questions about who is coaching the first team in preparation for this weekend's match against Cardiff and where Sammy Lee and Jimmy Phillips fit into the setup at Bolton Wanderers.
