Paulo Sousa said last night’s win at Crystal Palace was an important one for his side, as they keep up their push for a play-off place.

Last night’s fixture would have been 5th against 6th hadn’t Palace gone into adminstration recently, so it was tough game for Sousa’s team.

Shefki Kuqi got the only goal of the game against his former club and we had to remain strong and withstand constant pressure in the second half to hold on to the 3 points.

Sousa said:

“It is an important win especially at a tough team like Crystal Palace.

“We tried to play good football but we were well organised so we can get important results like this.

“And Shefki Kuqi is a player who has added something to our squad with different characteristics. And the clean sheets gives us consistency and confidence to look forward with a lot of happiness.”
