Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis was quick to praise his side’s hard-working performance in their 3-1 win over West Brom on Saturday.

Pulis’ January signings worked to perfection as both Tom Ince and Joe Ledley grabbed a goal as Crystal Palace continued to move further away from the drop zone.

Ince grabbed his first Palace goal when he beat Ben Foster in the West Brom goal in the 14th minute after good work from Yannick Bolasie. The former Blackpool winger then turned provider when his corner was met by Ledley before Thievy Bifouma pulled one back for the visitors.

Marouane Chamakh continued his impressive run under Pulis when he scored from the spot to wrap up the three points and move the Eagles up to 14th in the Premier League.

Palace have now taken 16 points from their seven home games under Pulis, and the former Stoke boss was delighted with his side’s effort in Saturday’s win.

“We work very hard on certain things and you hope that they will pay dividends,” he said.

“The other thing is the group are a very, very good group of lads. They might not be the most gifted but my god do they work hard.

“It was difficult out there. It was very, very windy and the pitch dried up with the wind.

“It became a little bit bobbly and bumpy but they kept going and I’m very, very pleased.”

Palace will be hoping to maintain their rise up the table but face a tricky run of fixtures as they travel to Everton on Wednesday before hosting Manchester United next Saturday.
