Palace co-owner Browett: Fans can help us in survival bid

Crystal Palace co-owner Steve Browett believes home fans will have a say on their survival bid this season.

Manager Tony Pulis has seen his side pick up 13 points from only six League games at Selhurst Park since he succeeded Ian Holloway, with a solitary defeat coming at home against Newcastle in December.

"These statistics are there to be broken and there's no reason why we can't stay up," Browett told the London Evening Standard.

"We're certainly in a better place than we have been in previous seasons when we've been relegated and I think we've got a better team.

"There's a lot of positive feelings amongst the fans and the team and amongst the owners."

Browett added: "Home form is the key and apart from that game against Newcastle, we've not been beaten at Selhurst Park since Arsenal back in October. Our fans are the best in the League as far as I'm concerned, certainly in terms of noise and passionate support.

"They really lift the whole team and the opposition must feel they are a long way from home sometimes."
