Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he is looking forward to a return to Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Warnock spent just over two years at Selhurst Park, before leaving the club after they were placed into administration and hit with a ten-point penalty.
The Leeds boss says it is a place he holds close to his heart and although he will be trying his hardest to take three points off them on Saturday, he is hoping they can win promotion this season.
Speaking at his weekly press conference, Warnock said, "We are looking forward to it; it is a great atmosphere at Selhurst Park. It actually gave me the love back after what happened at Sheffield United and come back into football.
"Simon Jordan and the fans were brilliant with me and I really enjoyed my spell there.
"I am looking forward to going back and I was pleased they won the other night.
"I do hope they go up, it is a club close to my heart but we will be going there doing our best to get a result."
Palace have won four of their last five games to move to within two points of the automatic promotion places and they beat fellow automatic promotion hopefuls Hull City 4-2 on Tuesday night with veteran striker Kevin Phillips netting a hat-trick.
The eagles led the table earlier in the season under former boss Dougie Freedman but struggled initially to adapt to life under new boss Ian Holloway.
After winning their first three games under Holloway to lead the table, Leeds ended his perfect start at Selhurst Park when they beat them 2-1 at Elland Road. The defeat saw them knocked off top spot and a run of just two wins in twelve games followed, seeing them slip to fifth in the championship table.
They have won five of their seven games since to see them back in the fight for an automatic promotion place with ten games remaining.
