Crystal Palace star delighted with Swansea point and targets three against Aston Villa

CRYSTAL Palace midfielder Joe Ledley is hoping to get back to winning ways on Tuesday night against Aston Villa following the Eagles' 1-1 draw at Swansea City.

Ledley and his team-mates were penned in their own half for the opening 15 minutes, and the hosts' pressure paid off when Wilfried Bony put the Swans ahead with an impressive finish.

Wales international Ledley, formerly of Cardiff City, felt Palace had chances to win it in the second half after Mile Jedinak's equalising penalty.

And the 27-year-old has targeted three points back at Selhurst Park and potentially go three games unbeaten.

"We have a good little run now, we've been unlucky this season but Swansea is always a tough place to come," said Ledley.

"We knew we weren't going to get much of the ball but I felt when we counter-attacked we looked dangerous, but it was a big point for us.

"They started well and it took us a while, we didn't start as well as we'd liked to and we were a bit sloppy giving balls away.

"Once we got going I thought we were good. We didn't start well against Liverpool either, but it was a big confidence boost going to Swansea after winning that.

"We fought hard together as a unit and we hit them in the counter and we could have won.

"We knew they would press us and they have great attacking players. We did threaten out on the wings and on another day we could have come away with three points.

"It was fantastic to come away with one and we deserved something from it. We can't get carried away at the moment, we're still down the bottom and we need to pick up wins.

"We just need to keep going, similar to last year and manage to pull away. Hopefully we can kick on again and beat Villa on Tuesday."
