“It’s a difficult time to be going away with recent results meaning we have dropped into the bottom three. I know the management and squad will work together so that we start making a step in the right direction.

“The fans were superb at QPR on Sunday and I know they will keep showing the same level of support and as a club we need to stay positive and strong.

“I will be keeping a close check on what is happening obviously but can I ask all Palace fans to stick in there and just give the lads your absolute backing to get us back to winning ways.”
