No crisis at Crystal Palace says Burley

George Burley says there is no crisis at struggling Crystal Palace. The Eagles come to Carrow Road tonight sitting second from bottom in the Championship after the weekend defeat at home to south London rivals Millwall – their sixth defeat in 11 games.

Palace boss Burley says the start has been far from ideal, but insists results will soon improve and that Palace will begin to climb the table.

'There is no crisis,' he said.

'We have a fight on our hands and it is something we have got to live with and take on board. It's not a case where we are getting run off our feet and getting outplayed.

'It's going to be a season where we have to keep going and we have to keep our heads up. We are not playing badly but the end product has to be better.

'We need our key players fit and we need to eliminate individual mistakes for goals and I am sure it will turn.

'If we keep playing the manner we are I am sure there won't be any problem as far as the bottom three.'

Palace will certainly need to improve their away form if they are to pull clear of trouble. So far this season they have yet to score in five league games on their travels, with a 0-0 draw at Cardiff providing their only point.

At the weekend the Eagles were linked with a loan move for Newcastle United striker Leon Best.

Best, 24, has �struggled since joining Newcastle from Coventry for ��1m last season and boss Chris Hughton would like him to go out for a month for some first-team football.
