Yannick Bolasie: Crystal Palace need to win away to get promoted

PALACE winger Yannick Bolasie says the Eagles can grab their first away victory since November at Derby County tonight.

After last Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, having dominated the second half, Bolasie believes now is the time for the Eagles to step it up on the road if they are to achieve automatic promotion.

And for a team in the play-off positions, it is a long time to go without winning away.

"I don't think it's on our minds and I don't think of it like that," he said.

"But when people do mention it and you look into it, you do think to yourself that we haven't won away for ages.

"That's football, but at home no one can beat us. Then again, if we want to get promoted, we need to be winning these type of away games coming up.

"It will be another tough test at Derby County, but we beat them at home and I think we can beat them away – we've got enough in the squad to do that.

"They have a similar home record to us, but we'll be looking to break that, and we've done that a lot to teams this season.

"We went to Leicester when they were unbeaten and we beat them, so hopefully we can do the same at Derby."

Former Bristol City team-mate Albert Adomah was linked with a move to Palace in the January transfer window and was quoted recently saying that he would not have moved to Selhurst Park and would have wanted to go to a Premier League club.

But Bolasie says that if Palace were to go back in for him this summer, the Ghana international may change his mind, especially if the Eagles achieve promotion.

He said: "Those are the type of players you need to come in to suit our formation.

"He would be a good one if he did come in, but he might go back on his word because we might be in the Premier League by then!

"I've known Albert for a while now from playing at Barnet and Bristol City, so we go back a long way.

"He knows I'm enjoying it at Palace and he's seen us play now – he thought our team was different class when we played them recently.

"Hopefully, that may change his mind as well if Palace came back in for him."
