Crystal Palace midfielder Neil Danns wants to put his injury problems behind him and hit 10 goals for the Eagles next season.

The 26-year-old has struggled with a succession of injuries since arriving at Selhurst Park from Birmingham last January, but he expects to be fully fit and raring to go next term.

"Next season will be a big one for me because I will get a 100% pre-season and start from the beginning on a level playing field with everyone - I'm confident I can get into double figures," he told the South London Press.

"At the start of January I wasn't totally fit. I needed matches so that I could become a box-to-box player again and I did get three goals in a 10-game spell.

"I had 18 months at Colchester where I scored 28 goals from central midfield - 12 in half a season and then 16 the one after that as we won promotion from League One. After that I moved to Birmingham and scored four in 11 starts.

"I've always had a ratio of a goal about every three matches - that's probably why I've got such good moves for myself."
