Nicola Ventola is desperate to play for Crystal Palace after a nightmare season with injury.
The Italian marksman, on a season-long loan from Internazionale, has spent most of the campaign out with a broken foot.
Ventola is back in training is has insisted that he is fit enough to figure in Iain Dowie's side in the crucial run-in.
The Eagles hosts fellow strugglers Norwich on Saturday in what is a real relegation six-pointer, and Ventola says that he is up for the battle.
"My mind has always been very strong, I have no fear," said Ventola.
"I really want to help the team and want to stay another year in the Premier League."
