JULIAN Speroni says he was only doing his job on Saturday against Burnley following a stunning penalty save. The Eagles legend stuck out a strong hand to palm away Scott Arfield's effort and ensure Palace came away with at least a point. "The team needs their goalkeeper to step up at times like that, it's my job," said Speroni. "I dived quite low and I had to react quickly and go with my upper hand and luckily I saved it. "Playing at home, we wanted to win the game and I think we had more than enough chances to do that but in the end we could have lost it. "It was a good point despite our early chances." Speroni, playing under Neil Warnock for a second spell, says the players will continue to respond to the manager and get used to his personality and style of play. "Neil makes such a big impact everywhere he goes and he has settled things down now and we are looking forward to what is coming," said the shot-stopper. "It won't take the other lads long to work out what Neil wants and expects from his players, he always makes himself very clear and they will pick it up in no time. "We had the international week and a lot of the players were away which made it hard really to work on anything . "Hopefully now we can work really hard and we'll be looking forward to the game against Everton."
