A first-half own goal from Ethan White proved decisive in a match that Palace dominated before their momentum stalled slightly after a raft of half-time changes. 

Pulis told the Palace website: “It was pleasing. We worked very hard, they made us work very hard. Full compliments to Philadelphia because it was a very competitive game.

“First half, truthfully, we should have scored quite a few goals and that’s not criticising them [Philadelphia] at all, that’s Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh and Gayley all missing really good chances that they should have scored from.

“In the second half we made lots of changes and it was a good work-out for us. That’s as hot as it’s been for the lads as well.”

After drawing 2-2 with Columbus Crew in the opening match of their American tour, Pulis was happy to see his squad gain more game time against a side who are fifth in the MLS Eastern Conference.

“As I’ve said before, the results don’t matter too much, it’s about getting the players fit,” Pulis said.

“The fitness levels I think are pretty good and the lads just need more games now. The group will have more game time against Richmond.”

Palace conclude their tour with a game against Richmond Kickers on Monday July 28.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
