Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman praised his side's fighting spirit for the 1-0 win over Barnsley.

Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman praised his side's fighting spirit for the 1-0 win over Barnsley.

Palace were heading towards their eighth draw in a 10-match unbeaten run until Sean Scannell’s late winner.

With Palace now just six points off sixth place, Freedman is not ruling out a late push for the Championship play-offs.

"It may be one step too far, but these players have a never-say-die attitude," he said. "We're unbeaten in 10 now so we're not a team that lies down, so anything is possible. It just shows what resilience we have got.

"The belief that we showed to keep on going when the performance wasn't the best is why we are doing so well this year. On the night Barnsley had all the possession, but we've ended up with the points."

Freedman added: "I'm delighted that Sean Scannell ended up with the winner. He's a talented kid who has been working hard and he deserves to do well."
