JACOB BUTTERFIELD says there's a lot more to come from him if he gets a run of games during his month-long loan at Palace.
The midfielder had a solid debut against Bolton Wanderers, but admitted it was also tough to make his third debut this season, having already spent time on loan at the Reebok Stadium and for parent club Norwich City.
"I was quite happy with it but I feel like I've got lots more to give," he said.
"I've had to move about a bit to find more game time, so it's always difficult and I've only been down here for a few days.
"I think it's just a case of getting a settled position in the team and that's when I'll start to show what I'm all about.
"The debut is always fun, but it's hard as well – a bit nerve-wracking and stuff, so I think I'll keep getting better the more I play."
And Butterfield insisted the Trotters were a hard nut to crack despite the Eagles creating numerous chances and hitting the post through Wilfried Zaha.
Meanwhile, Butterfield admitted there was a feeling around some of the players on Dougie Freedman's return to Selhurst Park, which contributed to a tight affair, especially in the first half.
"I think you could sense around the place with the fans and probably a few of the players a bit, but I think you could sense there was a bit of an extra spice to it," he said.
"It made it a bit of a cagey game and the football wasn't as free-flowing as we would have liked, but I was just focused on doing well for Palace."
