The defender has featured in 38 of the Saddlers' 40 matches in what has been a somewhat disappointing campaign for the club.
Expectations were high at the start of the season of a possible play-off place but that has not materialised. However, the feel-good factor has returned under the guidance of Chris Hutchings and Martin O'Connor, and Palmer is targeting a strong finish over the last six games.
"Since the management have been here we have set some extra standards and have a 'don't be beaten' mentality," he told the Express and Star.
"I know last season the team went on quite a good run and if we can do that at this late stage of the season we would end on a high."
He added: "All we have to do is to go into each game positively and you never know how you might end up. We are coming off with good results but we don't want to get ahead of ourselves, the table doesn't lie and we will end up where we deserve to be."
