Crystal Palace have an opportunity to move into the top-half of the Premier League table when they make the journey to Wolves on Saturday, March 5.
 
Patrick Vieira's side drew 1-1 with Burnley in the capital on Saturday to close within three points of the top-10 in 11th position.
 
The Eagles have collected six points from their last five games, with just one loss coming during that run.

Vieira expressed his disappointment that Palace weren't able to take control of proceedings against the Clarets and has urged them to make better use of the ball going forward.
 
"We didn't have enough control of the game. When we had possession we didn't create very much because we didn't put the ball on the floor and start play," he said.
 
"They did it quite well, putting us under pressure, and I'm disappointed. We tried in the second half, had a couple of situations and were missing something."
 
Bruno Lage's men will be looking to get their push for European football back on track after suffering successive defeats to Arsenal (2-1) and West Ham (1-0).
 
The Black Country club have now lost three of their last five encounters, which has seen them slip to eighth place in the standings.

However, Lage believes they are making strides to close the gap to the bigger clubs and has urged his players to keep up their efforts.
 
"After these two games, we can see we do not have a big distance between the top teams, but it's about the little details, the experience in the little details, and for sure, we will have time to grow up," he said.
 
"I'm proud of the boys because they're doing fantastic work and every time we need to improve, every time we need to continue doing the good things we are doing in the game, and now we move on.
 
"The next three months we need to continue to play the way we play against these teams. The next game is at our home and with our pack and we need to produce another top performance."
