Jedinak Praises His Teammates And Fans

10 April 2016

Mile Jedinak was quick to praise his teammates commitment and the support from the fans following Palace's 1-0 home win over Norwich City.

"I've got to commend everybody for the commitment they showed and also I'd like to give a shout out to the fans for playing their part in the game, because they were brilliant today," he said at full time.

"[The atmosphere] was tremendous. Maybe there was a little bit of anxiety and stuff, but it was great and we definitely felt it out there."

Selhurst Park erupted when Jason Puncheon curled home his first goal of the season to stop Palace's winless run at the 15th attempt, and Jedinak was delighted to see the Croydon born playmaker get off the mark.

"It's special. Obviously Jason's had a little while out and seeing him return to form and play such a pivotal role in the last two has been great to see," said the skipper. "I'm happy for Punch and none more so than when he does hit the back of the net. I'm really, really pleased for him.

As well as Puncheon, Jedinak himself has been on the receiving end of much of the post-match praise, hailed by manager Alan Pardew, the goal scorer and fans on social media for his relentless work to ensure Palace took the points.

"I'm happy to play whenever I'm called upon," he said. "What role I play changes some times but I'll always give it my all and I'm happy to play a part in today's game, to help lead the troops out, and it was a real professional and diligent performance, which it needed to be in tough circumstances."
