Cup finals season ahead for Crystal Palace

Tony Pulis is preparing his Crystal Palace side for '14 cup finals' in the final four months of the Premier League season.

The Eagles currently sit 17th on the table, just one point clear of the relegation zone, and Pulis is getting his players set for a run of matches that will have a bearing on the clubs future in the top flight.

"Every game in the Premier League is enormous," he told reporters. "There's 14 cup finals left.

"We've got to treat every one like a cup final. There's so many teams involved; there's going to be a lot of twists and turns. The crucial thing is to get one point more than the team that finishes third from bottom."

Palace, who lost 2-0 at Arsenal last week, host 16th-placed West Bromwich Albion at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
