Hart hopes television schedules will help Palace relegation fight

Crystal Palace boss Paul Hart feels the television schedules could play into his side's hands as they battle to beat the drop. Palace's home game against West Brom has been switched to Monday night to be shown live on Sky while relegation rivals Watford and Sheffield Wednesday play their penultimate matches on Saturday.

So if Wednesday are beaten at Cardiff, the Eagles will kick off their game against promoted Albion knowing a victory would ensure their safety.

"Playing Monday gives us a heads up so we will know what we need to do," said Hart.

"As long as results go for us we will know what we need to do to avoid relegation."
