Warnock unfazed by Palace struggles

01 February 2010 03:38
Palace's slide into administration has seen the club deducted 10 points and forced to sell teenage star Victor Moses to Wigan for an undisclosed fee.

Eagles manager Warnock has been assured his job is safe - but even if that situation changes the 61-year-old remains unfazed.

"I'm not too concerned either way because good managers always get jobs, don't they?" said Warnock, whose side host Wolves in an FA Cup fourth-round replay tomorrow night.

"I'm enjoying it at the moment and the administrator has told me he has no intention of asking me or any of my staff to leave.

"So we are going to give it our best shot. The fans know they are in safe hands on the field and we have to keep that going while the administrator does his job.

"We've got a tasty game against Wolves and I'm concentrating on that."

Palace's points penalty saw them plunge towards the relegation zone, but they showed they do not intend to hang around at the wrong end of the table with a defiant 2-0 win over Peterborough on Saturday.

And amazingly, Warnock has not entirely ruled out another run towards the play-offs - they are currently 11 points off sixth place.

"The 10 points is the biggest blow because deep down I quite fancied our chances in the play-offs," he said.

"But don't write us off yet, there's a lot of points to play for, 19 games, and you never know in football."

The money men at Palace will be praying for a victory over Mick McCarthy's side with a lucrative home tie against Aston Villa awaiting the winners.

Warnock added further spice to tomorrow night's clash by hinting Wolves were behind a combined bid for Moses and another talented youngster, right-back Nathanial Clyne.

"We had one Premier League club offer £1.5million for Clyne and Moses," he said, before adding: "It'll be a good game on Tuesday.

"They are probably trying to get my players to stop them playing against them!"
