Tony Pulis: New manager continued his good run at Crystal Palace

After a 1-0 win against West Ham in midweek, Palace's mini-revival under new boss Pulis continued with a comfortable 2-0 win over relegation rivals Cardiff.

Cameron Jerome and Marouane Chamakh were the goalscorers for Palace, while another clean sheet will be music to the ears of the typically miserly Pulis.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Stoke boss said: "Back to back wins at home, it gives everyone a bit more confidence.

"We started very sloppy, but we had two great chances before we scored.

"We've got some tough games coming up, especially away, so we needed six points from two games."

The victory leaves his side in the relegation zone, but only on goal difference, level on points with West Ham and just one point off their victims, Cardiff.

A new-found winning streak has been coupled with defensive solidity at Selhurst Park, and Pulis, appointed less than a month ago, has been heavily credited with the transformation.

When asked on how he has changed things at Palace, Pulis responded with a typically up front answer.

"Just keeping the team very tight and breaking from there, really. I thought (Marouane) Chamakh was great today - he was my man of the match - and Cameron (Jerome) could have scored three or four goals today.

"To see the effort that they've put in is fantastic. It gives everyone a lift."

As the January transfer window beckons, Pulis could be persuaded to dip into the market to further solidify his side's push for survival.

And when queried on the subject, Pulis confirmed that he will be looking to draft in some new faces when and where available.

"They're an honest group of lads, but we do need a few reinforcements," he said.

"Hopefully we can get some more points in before the January transfer window, then bring some players in."
