Hull look to spread anxiety in the ranks at Palace

Hull look to spread anxiety in the ranks at Palace

The Frenchman has been so solid at the back for the Eagles that they even included him in their shortlist for Player of the Year - despite only playing EIGHT games for the club.

Centre half Harry Maguire has spoken about his future and admitted his personal awards this season will count for very little if we fail to avoid relegation.

Crystal Palace have been dragged back into trouble after three straight defeats and now face relegation-threatened Hull on Sunday.

Allardyce says the game will be decided by which side best negotiates the pressure - and Palace's fans can tip the scales in their side's favour by staying positive.

"For me, Wilfried needs more protection, so he can show his abilities more", Allardyce said, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Palace claimed their seventh victory in eight games during their late charge for a playoff spot at Hull's old home Boothferry Park. The first thing we need to be (against Palace) is calm.




"Like everybody else, like here, the recruitment of players has been the difference between us before January and us after January". We have squad full of loan players, players who could easily be prised away from us by clubs in the Premier League and there are a number of players out of contract. "I like to believe that will happen on Sunday".

'We have to go there and win.it's as simple as that.

A point against Hull would be enough to guarantee safety and Puncheon said: "There have been some important goals and, hopefully, I can do that again on Sunday".

On the potential for another dramatic development in the survival race, he added: "That is possible".

"Get the result however we need to get it".
