Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis refused to comment when asked whether he would allow Jonny Williams to extend his loan spell at Ipswich Town beyond Saturday’s home game against Nottingham Forest.

The Eagles boss was at Portman Road on Tuesday night to witness Williams score fine a 30-yard equaliser and produce a superb all-round performance as the Blues beat Derby 2-1 to keep alive their top-six ambitions.

Attacking midfielder Williams has add some star quality to the Town side, filling the void left by injured talisman David McGoldrick, but his short-term loan is set to expire at the end of March.

Although the ‘emergency’ loan window closes at 5pm today, clubs can agree to extend existing loans beyond that date. Williams will definitely be in the Town squad for Saturday’s visit of Nottingham Forest, with Pulis and Mick McCarthy to have a discussion prior to the deal’s expiration next Monday.

Palace are just one place and three points above the Premier League drop zone with big games against Cardiff, Aston Villa, West Ham and Fulham to come.

“I went to watch the game at Ipswich and Jonny Williams scored a great goal and played well,” said Pulis. “But I will be speaking to Ipswich about Williams before speaking to the media.”

McCarthy has confirmed that he’d like to keep Williams until the end of the season, while Williams has said he’d like to stay at Portman Road if he’s not going to play for Palace in their battle against relegation.

  • Bidiot, how can you say that the Derby game was a dead rubber when we won and moved to within 2 points of the playoffs. The only deluded one on here is you with your sad hate driven drivel. Has MM wronged you in a previous life so much so that you have to attack everything that he does. A real and honest person would admit when they got things wrong, as you clearly did with your pre game posts on Tuesday, but we have heard nothing from you until you can mange to spout more rubbish. Why not try and be a bit more positive in life, who knows you may even enjoy it. We may not reach the playoffs but most people would agree that this has been a far better season than last.

  • 55 year a fool... the very definition of mid-table mediocrity is that you win some and lose some...try not to get too I pointed out before the Derby game, the match was a dead rubber and completely meaningless. And to repeat the obvious, no true Ipswich support would go to Portman Road under the current regime. You may be deluded - and if you have no shame and no conscience, that is your prerogative. Just remember you appall the vast majority of Town fans by supporting the current sham.

  • Can't blame Williams for wanting to stay as he's not getting in the team at Palace. As everyone knows players are better playing than sitting on the bench and if it means they need to drop down a level then so be it. Only a complete pleb with a sad negative outlook on life (not that they have any life) would think otherwise.

  • Whenif we get back to the Premier league, the real fans who still attend matches will feel more satisfaction than the fair weather fans, since we stuck to the team and supported them through the tough times and the wilderness years. It will be even sweeter mate. While you Ray, you will simply sit there in the corner of the Pioneer stand silently eating your Ginsters pasty that you brought with you (because you're too cheap to purchase anything from Town), and then trudge home after the match and log onto this forum and desperately attempt to compose something negative....

  • Bidwolf, I was not unpleasant in any way but you have insulted me with your odious comments. Your bigoted, superior air is unworthy of anywhere but the gutter. I accept that many supporters no longer go to games but they do not lower themselves to make nasty comments about those of us who do. You should feel ashamed but unfeeling people like you never do.

  • No Bidwolf, read what he said. He would prefer to play for Ipswich rather than NOT play for Palace. You have to deliberately twist things as usual to cause aggravation. I suppose you've had to lie low smarting this week after 2 good wins against teams above us. Still in mid-table mediocrity territory but looking up. From a supporter who is not deluded but goes and supports whatever because that is what real supporters do.
