STEVE Parish has called for a positive reaction at Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, which will be 24 hours after relieving boss Neil Warnock of his duties.
With Palace on a run of one win in 12 games, the Eagles will go into the London derby at Loftus Road under caretaker boss Keith Millen.
Parish wants three points to move out of the Premier League relegation zone to get the club's season back on track.
"Hopefully the players will pick themselves up, there are no other alternatives," he told the Advertiser.
"We need a result and we need a reaction. Let's hope that's what they give us.
"All games are big and it's about three points. It's not bigger than that, it's important we get back on track and get some points. It's all we can do."
