Goalscorer Gayle Pleased With Fightback

19 January 2015

After scoring with a composed finish three minutes from time, Dwight Gayle said his side's comeback win to beat Burnley epitomised the spirit and desire at the club.

The striker moved into double figures for the season with his brace, which includes six in the Premier League which already matches his league tally last season, and he feels as though the victory at Turf Moor showed that Palace belong to stay in the division for another season.

He said: “It's a massive three points because it's a dogfight down there but it proves we can come from two goals down and shows our great character.

“We show that every week but today was a really good sign that we want to be here next year against all the big boys and hopefully we can do that.

“We came out and we didn't start right but after that we got the ball down and showed that we could play. We just continued that in the second half and luckily we got the win.

“The team is helping me out to get my goals and hopefully I can continue doing that for them.”

He [Alan Pardew] has got us playing football and a lot of the boys have got a lot of confidence. That's what Keith [Millen] did when he took over which got us back playing well and hopefully we can continue that.”
