Crystal Palace boss Pulis guided his side to four wins out of five matches during the month, securing enough points to seal his side's place in the top division.

The Eagles added to their win over Chelsea at the end of March with four more victories on the bounce, beating Aston Villa at Selhurst Park and winning on the road at Cardiff, Everton and West Ham.

Their streak was eventually ended by Manchester City last Sunday when they fell 2-0 at home to the Premier League title favourites, but they ended the month in a safe 11th place.

Sunderland striker Wickham enjoyed one of the best spells of his career in April, scoring five goals in his side's last three games.

After returning from a loan spell with Leeds towards the end of March, Wickham went three games without a goal before scoring twice in their 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

He went on to score again in their shock 2-1 win at Chelsea and added two more goals in last weekend's 4-0 rout of Cardiff City, with those results enough to lift Sunderland out of the bottom three on goal difference.

He said: "It's fantastic for me, personally, to come back from what's been a difficult season. I've come back and I've worked hard and it's paying off now."

From Pariah to Messiah. the fickleness continues. We'll always love you TP for what you did for us. Your time came as we wanted to move on to a different approach and had different ideas about spend and the academy. It couldnt have worked out for any better. PC and TP still top mates, Stoke doing better with better football, TP doing a sterling job at CP and getting deserved plaudits. Now all we need is for us to finish 9th and CP to finish 10th. Perfick.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
