Adrian Boothroyd still maintains his side have a chance of automatic promtion, that despite a third game without victory.
Saturday's home defeat to Palace came after a draw against West Brom and a defeat to Barnsley, yet despite the faltering form, he's confident:
'I genuinely believe that it will go to the wire.
'It's a blow but we can't keep relying on everyone else around us to mess it up.
'I think first place is gone now but second is still very much up for grabs.'
The King of Spin also found time post match to praise his troops performance, sadly though, not their finishing:
'We've created enough to win two or three games.
'I knew what Palace would be able to do and there's always a chance of creating with the pace they've got.
'We've created some unmissable chances and missed them. If you do that then that is what you get. We should have won 4-0.'
The same old hard luck story; it's waring a bit thin lads...
