Jedinak Delighted With His Side's Efforts

6 May 2014

Eagles captain Mile Jedinak was thrilled with the spirit his team showed after they staged a late comeback to snatch a point against Liverpool by scoring three goals in nine minutes.

A Damien Delaney long-ranger and a quick-fire brace by Dwight Gayle stunned the league leaders and provided a night that will live long in the memory of Eagles fans, and add to a lengthy list of highlights from an incredible campaign for the club.

After his side had found themselves three goals down against Brendan Rodgers' title challengers, the Aussie midfielder praised his team-mates for showing plenty of courage to overcome the odds and play their part in a Premier League classic.

After he game, he said: "It's hard to explain but I think determined is the word that best sums it up. We let them play their game and we are very harsh on ourselves when we concede a set-piece so we thought we let them in a little bit too easily for our liking.

"We stayed strong after it went to 3-0 and still had a go and got the bodies forward, and slowly it went to 3-1 and then 3-2 and then I just had the feeling that they were a little bit rattled. I thought if we kept going we might have a chance here and luckily enough we did.

"I thought all the finishes tonight were great. Gayley was brilliant when he came on and the energy he and Glenn Murray injected was fantastic. 

"I'm over the moon with the lads for their efforts in that final 20 minutes to keep on pushing."
