JOE Ledley says he and his Crystal Palace team-mates didn't expect to go on a five-game unbeaten run, especially with some of the sides they have come up against recently. Had Palace won against Manchester City on Sunday, they would have broken their club record in the Premier League of consecutive wins, which was previously set by the Eagles December 1992. However, Ledley is delighted to have helped Palace secure their top flight status for next season and is also happy off the pitch too. "My aim was to come here, play well and help the team (avoid relegation)," he said. "We have done it, but with the teams we've played, I don't think we expected to be on a five-game unbeaten run. "We beat some fantastic teams like Chelsea and Everton. It's come to an end now but hopefully we can finish strongly. "I have settled down here and my family are really enjoying it. "It's nicer to be a bit closer to home and everything is going well on the pitch as well. "I'm happy, I don't really mind where I play. It was good to be in the centre (against City) and I thought I did OK and can hopefully build on it."
