JULIAN Speroni says Crystal Palace need to respond to their back-to-back defeats this weekend away at West Bromwich Albion.
The shot-stopper isn't pressing any panic buttons following losses to Hull City and Chelsea, and says Palace can expect to have ups and downs this season.
"This is the Premier League, of course you're going to have periods when things are not going your way," said Speroni.
"The important thing is the reaction of the team and what's going to happen next week and how we bounce back.
"We need to show the character of the team. I am talking about a good performance of how we've been playing recently.
"There are no questions about the character, I mean that we have to show it.
"Last season we started slowly but in the end we managed to stay up, and this season we have started better so there are positives moving forward."
