Quotes

Sam Allardyce

"Our players need to get ready for Swansea on Tuesday night - that's the big game they need to win. Watching Premier League football this year, the top six are so much better than last year so it's always hard to pick up points against them.

"Our big game's on Tuesday, there's no doubt about it. We're going to survive by beating teams in the bottom half.

"If we get a victory against one of the top boys that'll be the added bonus to get us safe quicker. It's been so long since Palace have gone on an extended run of good results.

"I'll know by the end of the window (how difficult a task survival is). Two things have to happen for the team to get better and produce results.

"Get the team fitter - getting the injured players back - and try and buy players in. Two if possible, three if the finances will allow. I want to lift the squad.

"I can lift the squad by the way we train and organise ourselves, and we can lift the squad by bringing a couple of good players in to lift it. If you get the right players you can lift those already here.

"Because they haven't won so many games in the whole of 2016, they're a little bit low on confidence - that you have to try and build up."
