George Burley insists there is no crisis at second from bottom Crystal Palace and is confident the club will turn the corner. The Eagles suffered their sixth reversal in 11 games after a 1-0 weekend defeat to south London rivals Millwall.
Burley accepts that the start has been far from ideal, with expectations high around Selhurst Park before a ball was kicked this term.
"There is no crisis," the Scot told the Croydon Guardian.
"We have a fight on our hands and it is something we have got to live with and take on board. It's not a case where we are getting run off our feet and getting outplayed.
"It's going to be a season where we have to keep going and we have to keep our heads up. We are not playing badly but the end product has to be better.
"We need our key players fit and we need to eliminate individual mistakes for goals and I am sure it will turn.
"If we keep playing the manner we are I am sure there won't be any problem as far as the bottom three."
