thumbnail Hello,

Despite their poor start not being "easy to take", the managerless Eagles have a good team spirit, insists the defender, and will do their best to improve on their three points

Crystal Palace defender Joel Ward has vowed that the players will do everything that they can to try to turn around their horrific run of form.

The Eagles have made a poor start to life back in the Premier League, sitting bottom after taking just three points from their opening 10 games.

Ian Holloway, who led the club to Championship play-off success last term, left Selhurst Park in October but, with the search for a replacement ongoing, caretaker boss Keith Millen has been unable to reverse their fortunes.

However, Ward believes that the spirit in the dressing room can help Palace to improve their results sooner rather than later, telling the club's official website: "We just need to start picking up points.

"We've got a great bunch of guys here who will dig in deep and keep focused on our jobs. We'll give everything we can to turn it around.

"Obviously it's not easy to take but you've got to take it on the chin and bounce back as quickly as possible.

"We'll take the positives from every game, keep moving forward, keep our heads down and try and turn things around. That's all we can do, that's all we can focus on and that's what we will try and do."

Palace lost their seventh straight top-flight game at West Brom on Saturday and face a home match against Everton next on November 9.
