Ince urges Crystal Palace to relish relegation challenge

Tom Ince believes Crystal Palace has to welcome the challenge of being involved in a relegation scrap.

The Eagles produced a much-needed point with a 1-1 draw at Swansea City on Sunday to go three clear of the drop zone ahead of next weekend's home meeting with Southampton.

Ince says it is important that the south London club revels in the task of entering every match as one where they must record at least a point to keep their tally ticking along.

"We've now got to win games that we know we can win," the on-loan Blackpool winger told Sky Sports.

"We've got another tough game next weekend at home to Southampton. They're another strong team with fantastic players. If we can play like we did in the second-half today, then hopefully we can get three points.

"Ten, 11 games to go - it's getting tighter. You have to relish it, enjoy the moment and challenge yourself.

"There are eight or nine teams in it and we have to make sure we are not one of the bottom three at the end of the season."
