A combo of stronger defence and a decent attack could really help us. Looking at Boro and Sunderland you can't see where the points are going to come from. Hull worry me, but at least it's in our hands now. That game against Leicester will be a big one!

I hope Leicester get past seville now.

The quarter final dates are before and after our game with them.

If they are all but safe by then, and they could well be, then they will have at least one eye on those games.

Man city getting to the Champions league semi would be good as well. As we play them between the 1st and 2nd legs.

Man utd getting to the facup final (last game is 6 days before the final) or better still the Europa league final. (3 days before our game).

And the Palace way won't be the obvious one. Lose to Hull but beat Spurs and get a shock point at a top 4 club

Big boost today!

But a long way to go. And after Watford the fixtures get incredibly tricky. Still think it will be tough.

The Watford, Leicester, hull and Burnley games are so crucial now. 12 points from them will keep us up.

Two wins in a row and suddenly staying up feels possible.

But those fixtures...please someone present a scenario that seems more doable than winning four more games!!

These 12 points will do the job. I'm thinking 10 + 1 from Southampton. But need to beat hull.

Need to be looking at hull Burnley Watford Leicester home games. 9 points min from them and we are very nearly there. Nick a point at saints or against another of the top 6 and happy days. Surely we are due a win against arsenal!

Hull have not won away for 12 games which means they have to rely on their home form and getting better results than Palace to make up what really is now a 5 point gap due to their inferior goal difference.

If Palace can beat Watford then there will be other teams far more catchable than Palace who could be 14th or 15th in the table.

Middlesbrough are not scoring let alone winning games and that will not be good enough to catch Palace if their form over the last 7 games continues.

If Palace beat Watford then they would move on to 28 points and only be 3 points behind them and Palace have a better goal difference than them as well.

The next round of fixtures sees the following :
Palace v Watford
Everton v Hull
West Ham v Leicester
Bournemouth v Swansea
Middlesbrough v Man United
Sunderland v Burnley

In which case we won't be in relegation zone.

A good way of looking at it though is they will take points of each other

That was a wonderful and unexpected win yesterday, but also shows how quickly fortunes can turn around, just a couple of games ago Leicester and Palace were looking in dire trouble and Not even being able to buy a win, now both are talking about safety as being a given, i hope we don't.
We need to remain focused and keep working hard in training on the basics as we have done, also Not set any targets as the players will know what is needed and allow them to take responsibility. With the break coming up will allow us to do so but also to relax mentally from the pressures we have been under, maybe a 3 day getaway in the sun to relax would help hugely i feel, but is also well deserved.
We Must avoid relegation at all costs, as i feel next season will see the start of big changes being made On and Off the field to ensure we move forward, as i see Harris and Blitzer having a much bigger input in which direction we go.

I think we could get to Hull with 33 points then a win would do it. Could go horribly wrong tho.

A lot depends on which Palace come back from warm-weather training. Hopefully we hit the ground running as failure against Watford could prove very costly - in terms of both points and momentum.

Also worth remembering that we have only once come back to win after falling behind in a game (and that against Sunderland, who were woeful.) It's very likely that statistic will be tested again in the run-in, so hopefully our new conference and resolve will carry us through.

I certainly don't think the job is done .What is clear though is we played better than at any time in the last 12 months.There was confidence and belief in the players who also looked fitter.After Sunderland we looked down and Incould see no way out but we now have a real chance.
