'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dowie 'Only Kilgallon Threatened'

Palace manager Iain Dowie claims his side have Sheffield United in their sights after the shock win at Elland Road.

Dowie: 'I thought we were superb in the first half and resolute in the second. You have to be when you come to a place like Elland Road - look at their home record.

'They are a big, big club and they have some good players - some talented players.

'We had to defend resolutely - and apart from (Matthew) Kilgallon's header at the far post (goalkeeper Gabor) Kiraly really didn't have a save to make in the second half.

'We felt we should have been further ahead in the first half. We had some great chances, and it was a great goal.

'We are very pleased. But it's finished now and it's on to Derby.

'To come here and get a win in the manner of it and timing of it is very important. But it has no bearing on anything else on Saturday - and we just move on.

'Is be possible to catch Sheffield United?
It's feasible. We'll see how we go. Sheffield United have had a fantastic season, and [table-toppers] Reading have been without fault, omnipotent.

'We'll see what happens. If I had hair to lose I'd be worried about it.'

Palace caught a lucky one here, Radio London repeatidly reported live "how can Palace hang on", if it was not for poor finishing Leeds would have one that game. The class of Johnson was very important when the opportunity came, but generally it was a game thorughly dominated by Leeds.
