Palace have claimed just four points from a possible 24 and effectively ends their play-off hopes.

Neil Warnock hopes to make a few loan signings after watching another very poor display from his Crystal Palace, who went down 2-0 to Watford.

Warnock said: ‘I didn’t see Watford have many chances and Tommy Smith and Jobi McAnuff flattered them a bit. That’s the type of player we are looking for.

‘It is still possible but we don’t have the quality at the moment. I am trying to get a few loan players in but the climate is difficult to get anyone in at the minute.

‘Watford had a few more leaders out there this afternoon but I certainly didn’t see much of a Chelsea influence in their play.’

Warnock thinks Watford’s first goal was offside – one of a number of decisions he felt the linesman got wrong.

Warnock said: ‘I wanted to make sure that we kept an eye on the offsides so I had my subs warming up with him.

‘We were very disappointed obviously with the goal but a couple more before that as well. The referee came over to speak to me and I thought he handled it very well.

‘He has to take the linesman’s decision as he sees it. The fourth official had a word with me all afternoon but that is what he is there for. I have no problem with him.’

  • The whole league , top to bottom are throwing up surprise results. Will go to the wire for the glory and survival.

  • Looked at your fixtures and i think it’s a mid table position for you. The last three results have killed any chance you had but good luck anyway.
