Jedinak: We need to regroup

Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak admits his side are disappointed after losing to Manchester United, but wants them to regain focus quickly.

The defeat for Palace was only the second time they have lost at home since Tony Pulis replaced Ian Holloway in November.

A good run of results has seen the Eagles move out of the relegation zone, although Pulis' side are only two points clear of the bottom three.

Midfielder Mile Jedinak was left despondent by the defeat with Palace having been on the front foot before Marouane Chamakh felled Evra inside the area on 62 minutes.

"We had them under a little bit of pressure before that first goal so we'll take a lot of positives from that," he said.

"We've just got to keep building. The word 'disappointment' comes to mind, but it was encouraging nonetheless.

"It was a defeat, but we let them off the hook a bit. We gave them a penalty through a challenge which was probably a rash decision at the time. Those things can happen in football."

Palace travel to Swansea next Sunday as they look to move further clear of the drop-zone and Jedinak is keen to move on from the United defeat.

"Our next game is on Sunday against Swansea away so we've got to regroup, regather, put this out of our system and keep building," he added.

"There is not time to feel sorry for yourself. We will pick each other up, dust it off and get right back to work."
