Ward hails Palace character for victory over Liverpool

Crystal Palace defender Joel Ward hailed the character shown for victory over Liverpool.

Ward believes it was vital he and team-mates came away with something after Saturday's results.

"It was a massive result for us and everyone was playing at their best," he told the Croydon Advertiser. "It was huge with a few results going against us on Saturday so it was important we picked up a result.

"We showed we can handle ourselves against teams like Liverpool and we thoroughly deserved the win.

"We put in a solid display from back to front. The front lads worked tremendously hard and we know if we stay in the game then we've got a chance.

"We proved that with Punch and Yala, and the boys coming off the bench. Everyone was on form."
