​Hodgson: Crystal Palace still on track for top half finish

Crystal Palace go into Saturday's game on the back of three straight league defeats, leaving them four points off the top 10 with 12 games left, but boss Roy Hodgson is still confident of a top half finish.

"We had our turning point from being very, very successful to the last three games being unsuccessful," he said.

"We'd like to put an end to that little sequence and start winning and drawing more games than we have in the last few weeks.

"We started so well and have had the brakes put on, particularly by injury and partly by misfortune. At one stage when we were flying high we were hoping to finish in the top half and, at the moment, I don't see any reason why we should abandon that hope."
