Palace ready to play ugly for survival, says Allardyce

Having registered one victory in 10 previous league games, Steve Coppell was a relieved Palace manager when his side thrashed Hull with goals from Kevin Taylor, Phil Barber, Andy Gray and two from Tony Finnigan.

If Hull lose at Palace and rivals Swansea City beat already-relegated Sunderland, the Tigers' elimination to the Championship will be confirmed before their final game against Tottenham Hotspur.

N'Diaye struggled to show his old side what they were missing last weekend, and will no doubt be in for another hard afternoon this weekend facing Milivojevic.

"There is Hull we need to compete against and the size of the game", said the former England manager.

'It's been a good season from a personal point of view and it was nice to pick up a couple of awards this week. We have squad full of loan players, players who could easily be prised away from us by clubs in the Premier League and there are a number of players out of contract. That philosophy has to apply for Sunday and whatever happens, however well you play or don't play, it's the result that matters. If we can get it by playing well, being creative and scoring goals, then fine.

'We have to go there and win.it's as simple as that. These are two finals for us.

Palace have now triumphed on their last three league visits to Anfield - the first team to achieve that feat since Chelsea in October 2005.

"I definitely think there's a twist yet", he added. "The good teams show what they can do in these moments".

"We all understand the importance of Sunday", says Puncheon. We look for our work and the next game is most important to us.

"Get the result however we need to get it".

The French defender joined the London club on a temporary basis in the January transfer window and has gone on to make eight appearances for the Eagles.
