'We know how difficult it is' - Hodgson trying to keep his Palace players ground

Roy Hodgson admitted his Crystal Palace side are not even considering relegation from the Premier League after beating Huddersfield.

The Eagles earned a 2-0 victory over the Terriers at a snowy John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday thanks to goals from James Tomkins and Luka Milivojevic.

The win moves them up to 16th in the table, but Hodgson has warned his players are not going to be complacent between now and the end of the season.

He said: “We’ve tried to avoid discussing that certainly as a team because we know that with seven games to go there’s going to be twists and turns.

“The most important thing for us today was coming away from Huddersfield with a result, ideally a win, but certainly not a defeat.

“To make certain we could keep our hopes of staying in the division alive because, had we not done that today, then suddenly the gap to teams like Huddersfield gets greater and greater and it’s difficult enough.

“We know how difficult it is, we had to make up eight points to get out of the relegation zone the first time.

“We had to win a lot of games to get a lot of points; I think we went on an unbeaten run of about 12 or 13 games to do that so we know how tough it is.”
