TONY Pulis is set to be confirmed as Crystal Palace's new manager today (Saturday). It is understood that a deal is close to being agreed and the 55-year-old Welshman could be at the KC Stadium to see the Eagles take on Hull, though Keith Millen will still manage the team. Former Stoke manager Pulis has emerged as the clear front-runner for the job in recent days, after a month-long search for Ian Holloway's successor. The likes of Chris Coleman and former Man Utd coach Rene Meulensteen were linked with the role, while Palace chairman Steve Parish flirted with the idea of bringing Iain Dowie back to SE25. But Pulis - a man who has never been relegated as a manager - now seems set to be the man charged with keeping Palace in the Premier League.
