Crystal Palace

Schlupp issues rallying cry

5th February 2019, 11:56 by Neil Foster

Jeffrey Schlupp believes Crystal Palace are better than their position suggests and will keep working to move up the table.

The Eagles have been at the wrong end of the standings for the majority of the campaign and currently find themselves 14th, four points above the dreaded relegation zone.

Consistency has been the issue while the south Londoners have lost a number of games by the odd goal, and there is a sense that they could be in a much better position.

Schlupp certainly thinks so and is determined that he and his team-mates will not deviate from the current path to ensure that they get their rewards at the end of the campaign.

"Without getting carried away, we've got a lot of top players and we found ourselves in a position where we don't feel we should be," he said. "But you know how the Premier League is, you never know what's going to happen.

"We've just got to stick to our task, win some more games and score some more goals. We can then start looking up to the other half of the table."
