Jermaine Easter has said the Palace squad was utterly deflated after our 3-3 draw with Reading, especially himself following his cracking goal to put us 3-2 up.

Speaking to News Shopper after a well earnt rest, Easter said the result did end up feeling like a loss after the euphoric boost the whole team felt when he put us 3-2 up.

‘It did feel like a defeat, it was a crazy game. We should’ve won, we started off like a house on fire and we are disappointed to only take a point. It wasn’t to be.’

The Eagles really should’ve wrapped the game up at 2-0 before Reading fought back and Easter adds that with Reading up there, a point should be considered decent but it’s the fact that:

‘…we’ve been playing so well at home, and being 2-0 up only to end 3-3,’ is why it feels like a kick in the Mitre’s.

Easter promises that the team won’t let the result affect them as we move forward to the end of the season, by adding.

‘It was two points dropped, but we can’t dwell on that too much because we have got a lot of games coming and hopefully we can take the points required.’

Next up is Burnley and whilst that won’t be easy, we more than have a chance to grab the 3 points we want. If we can show the same determination as we did against Reading, but play it tighter at the back we are in with a great shot.
