Ian Holloway: Still eyeing promotion

Ian Holloway: Still eyeing promotion

The Eagles, who looked on course for a top-two finish earlier this season, are without a win in their last nine matches and still not guaranteed a play-off place.

They need a point against Peterborough on Saturday to be sure of a top-six finish and Holloway feels they will get it if his players perform as well as they did in Tuesday's goalless draw at Millwall.

"We've still got a fantastic chance," he said.

"We need one more point if results go against us and with a performance like Millwall I can see us getting it.

"We have got to get in there and then we will be hard to beat.

"I don't think we are anything like we were a couple of weeks ago when things were just going totally wrong. Let's hope we can give our fans something to cheer about with a shot at the play-offs."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
