Crystal Palace go to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to three games.

And confidence is high in the camp after recent victories on the road at Aston Villa and WBA, and a close 1-0 defeat at Manchester City.

Eagles defender Jonathan Parr is relishing the prospect of the trip to north London, although Stoke City, the last team to visit White Hart Lane in the Premier League, ended up on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline.

Parr said: “We’re doing well on the road at the moment, which I think is down to how Tony [Pulis] has set us up.

“Tottenham will be tough, they are a good side with a good manager now and playing in their stadium is never easy.

“But we a lot more solid now and we are a lot harder to break down.”

He added: “Between now and the end of the season there are plenty of tough games, we just have to put in the hard work, and hopefully we will collect enough points to keep us in the Premier League, that is the ultimate goal.”

The last time the sides met was on the opening day of the season, where a Roberto Soldado penalty was the difference between the two sides.

No repeat: Palace are a lot more defensively sound since the opening day defeat to Tottenham Hotspur
