Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew has set his sights on two Premier League wins before they face Watford in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The Eagles have now gone 11 league games without a win following the 1-0 defeat against Leicester City at the weekend which leaves them perilously close to the relegation zone.

Two wins should be enough to end any fears of relegation and Pardew wants them secured before they take on the Hornets at Wembley on April 24.

Before then Palace face West Ham (a), Norwich (h), Arsenal (a) and Manchester United (a), and six points would take the pressure off and allow them to enjoy the semi-final clash.

“I am not going to put a total on it because that will change slightly,” Pardew said. “All I do know is that we need a win, or two wins, before that semi-final and that is what we have got to target. If we get those we would be fairly happy.

“I am slightly baffled by the fact we do not have a win in this run of games. We have certainly got ourselves more than close on a couple of occasions. We did not get anything against Leicester. We go to the next one. That is all we can do.”
