The Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has said that he feels that the season for the club will finally start to kick off following their first win of the season over Sheffield Wednesday. Crystal Palace have made very bad start to the new season after they have lost the opening for matches in the league. Crystal Palace have suffered defeat at the hands of Watford, Bristol city, Middlesbrough and Preston prior to this match. It was a very surprise result given that Sheffield Wednesday were coming into the match after having not lost a single match since February.
The amazing run came to an end after they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace. The manager Dougie Freedman has said that he finally hopes that this victory will provide his players with enough confidence to take into the next matches. He has said that the club needs to win as many matches as possible in order to get out of the relegation zone as soon as possible. The club are currently just one place above the bottom of the Championship table. They have only three points on the board after having played four matches.
“I believe this team will get better and get stronger. We were low on confidence but we ground out a win against a team, let’s not forget, who were unbeaten in 18 games, who had all the momentum with them, a team who won promotion last year. They were against a team bottom of the league with no points, who everyone was writing off. That just shows you the character we have in this team,” said Freedman after the 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Crystal Palace will be having tough matches against Nottingham Forest and Cardiff city in the next few encounters.
