The third-placed Eagles stretched the longest home unbeaten run in English football to 19 matches when they secured a 2-2 draw against Leeds on Saturday.

They also have the country's top scorer in Glenn Murray, who took his tally for the season to 30 with a well-taken double.

Next up is a trip to derby rivals Brighton, before a home game against Birmingham followed by a visit to Holloway's old club Blackpool over Easter.

"We've got nine games left now and we're one point off second place at the moment," he said.

"It's all about your form at the moment, and your belief and your energy. I can't fault our lads there."
