Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson still wants to add to his squad this month despite their upturn in form.

The Eagles have lost just once in 12 league games and are five points clear of the drop zone.

They have been able to climb the table without key players. Scott Dann, Joel Ward, Mamadou Sakho, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jason Puncheon, Andros Townsend, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Connor Wickham are all sidelined with injuries.

When asked about his January transfer plans, Hodgson said: "Nothing changes.

"These games can be dangerous in that respect because if we start changing our targets and think everything is flying then no. There's still only Christian Benteke (as a recognised striker).

"(Bakary) Sako is doing well up there, but he is a left winger.

"That is not a Premier League bench. I'm looking at other Premier League players who are experienced, on the bench, and hoping to get a chance. To say that it's not a problem and you can continue with this run is ludicrous.

"We have got a goalkeeper who is doing well and another who has been a wonderful club servant but if one of them gets injured then we've only got one."
