Ian Holloway: Crystal Palace manager still expects top-six spot

The Eagles could have secured a top-six spot with victory over south London rivals Millwall but had to settle for a goalless draw in a scrappy, nervy encounter.

Yannick Bolasie came closest to breaking the deadlock with a 25-yard drive which forced a stunning one-handed save from Lions goalkeeper David Forde.

Palace are now without a win in nine matches but a point at home to Peterborough should be enough to extend their season.

Holloway said: "I've been confident in my team all along. The fact is we have had an horrendous run, but sometimes you have to enjoy what you get.

"We were a threat, we looked solid and I thought everyone in my team played well so let's enjoy this one.

"Then we've got another one to enjoy on Saturday and we are one of the lucky teams, we are at the right end.

"We need one more point and with a performance like that I can see us getting it. I want to get Palace in the play-offs and if we do get there I think we'll be a handful."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
