Palace midfielder: I still believe we can make the Premier League

CRYSTAL Palace midfielder Andre Moritz couldn't believe he and his team-mates were on the end of a 3-0 defeat to Ipswich last night.
But the Brazilian says he is confident the Eagles can reach the Premier League despite their stuttering form.
"It had to be the most awkward game I've played in my life," he told Advertiser Sport.
"For me, we were dominating the whole time, even when they were 3-0 up.
"We may have only had once chance in the second half but still we were dominating.
"We all take responsibility for personal mistakes because it's not just on one person, when we lose everybody loses.
"We are still in a good position and we can still do the play-offs – I still believe we can make the Premier League."
Goalkeeper Julian Speroni was at fault for the opening goal of the game, but Moritz refused to blame him or anyone else individually and is keen to put things right against Leicester City on Saturday at Selhurst Park.
"It is harsh on Julian but we are a team," he said.
"If it's his mistake, Rambo's or mine, it's the team, it's not one.
"It was a great strike (for their second goal) but those things can happen to you.
"Leicester is a big, big game now. We need the three points, and probably if we win, we'll confirm our place in the play-offs – we just need to be focussed now."
