Palace defender: Don't forget where we were in August

PETER Ramage has reiterated it's important to remember just how far Palace have come this season and that it was important to stop their recent rot with a clean sheet against Barnsley on Saturday.
The 29-year-old, however, was happy with the performance from his team-mates.
"We're frustrated we didn't win more than anything else," he said.
"It was nice to stop the rot in terms of conceding goals and getting a clean sheet.
"We created so many chances and we were unable to put it in the back of the net.
"Everybody is doom and gloom, but we're fourth in the league – six points ahead of seventh position.
"People have got to realise we lost the first four games of the season and we were bottom of the league adrift, and now we've turned it around.
"OK, we haven't won the last four games but we didn't play badly against Barnsley.
"We were disappointed to send the fans away without a win, but as a team, we were happy with our performance."
The stopper also said it was a strange situation regarding the home and away kits for both sides.
"It's the first time I've across it," said Ramage.
"It was a bit of a shambles before the game – first they were wearing their home kit, then their away, then we were wearing our away kit, and then they ended up wearing our away.
"The kitman had to go and mark up all their shirts which I don't think he was too happy about, so it was strange.
"I thought everybody played really well but we weren't able to score, which is the biggest, and hardest, thing in football."
With no game this weekend, attentions now turn to Ipswich Town on Tuesday next week, and Ramage is hoping the extra days off will help them prepare.
And he hasn't given up hope of claiming second spot in the Championship either.
"Until somebody says we can't get it, there isn't one person in that dressing room that's not going to strive to get it," he said.
"Winning games will get us the momentum again and performing well.
"It was important to stop the rot with a clean sheet to start again.
"We just want to keep going, but we'll use the ten days now to our advantage and hopefully we can get some good training under our belts and get back to winning ways at Ipswich."
