Crystal Palace caretaker boss Keith Millen says they have the talent to beat the drop.

Crystal Palace caretaker boss Keith Millen says they have the talent to beat the drop.

Millen is adamant the Eagles can force their way out of the bottom three, despite reports that managerial candidates are put off the post by Palace’s plight.

"There is enough points to play for to stay up," the caretaker boss said. "We have got to be better than three other teams and if you can get a win or a point even on Saturday, it is a start.

"We are not adrift yet. I mean a couple of good results and we'll be within touching distance of other teams. We've got to stay positive and looking forward to the game on Saturday.

"I can only speak from myself, working with the group day in and day out.

"There is still belief there. I think we've got enough talent in the squad to compete with, if you like, five or six other teams in this division.

"You only have to be better than three others to survive and I feel where we are at the moment we can do that."
