Crystal Palace manager Paul Hart admitted he was ’emotionally drained’ following his sides epic 2-2 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.

The result meant that Palace stayed up whilst their opponents Wednesday will be playing League One football next season.

‘I often listen to people say they were left emotionally drained and I know what they mean now,’ Hart told BBC Sport.

”It’s been a very emotional day,’ Hart said. ‘Great relief on our part but there’s sadness on their part because Alan Irvine’s a friend, I played here as well and I’ve been relegated. It’s not very nice.

‘We’re hoping the new ownership gets completed and now Palace can build from a sounder base of Championship football, which I think is important.

‘It’s such a great club that I would fully expect, with the correct business practices put in place, that the right visionary people, if handled properly, could make great progress.

‘I’ve said all along, let’s get the takeover done then the new owners can make a decision on the next manager,’ he added.

Lets hope that the CPFC2010 consortium see survival as a huge plus point to invest in the club.
