Ben watson has said the he believes that Palace have the firepower to storm the championship with force.

Watson who is out for six weeks with an ankle injury has also said the Palace’s defence needs to be rock soild if their to get out of this division.

‘Goals wont be a problem for us this season,’ Watson told icons.com.

‘We’ve got four good strikers who are all capable of scoring, and we proved that against Southampton,Scowy got three and Clint got the other, its good to see them score already and Im sure it will continue.

‘I think the championship is going to be even more competitive than it was last season, especially when you look at the quality of the teams that came down.

‘They’ve all spent a lot of money and will want to give it a go, but anyone can still beat anyone, so its going to be a tough league again.’
