CRYSTAL Palace boss Tony Pulis looks set to continue with the strike duo of Marouane Chamakh and Cameron Jerome, hinting they could be his first choice pairing – for now. Both players started at Norwich City on Saturday and showed signs of a blossoming partnership, which can only improve with extra work in training. "I thought the two played really well," said Pulis. "Chamakh, I really hope we can get him on board because he's got really good quality. "He linked up well with Cameron, and Cameron's always a threat if he plays to his strengths. We have got to make sure those two have a partnership and a relationship and that they play together as a pair." It was Pulis' first game in the Palace dugout since arriving at the helm the previous weekend and he believes "one or two" new additions will help the Eagles squad in January. But he is delighted to be back in management since leaving Stoke City at the end of last season. "Of course (I have missed the game), I'm a football man, and sometimes you do need a break and be out of it," said Pulis. Everything about the Premier League is wonderful. My wife wouldn't have been happy with me jumping around (at Norwich). "I was pleased with the game, the group worked really hard, they've taken things on board. "We have to bring in one or two players and I think everyone understands that, just to help the group, and I think the group would be the first to be happy with that. "I have not been here long enough (to judge the current quality). I've seen two games, and I think we played better than they did at Hull and created more chances and opportunities. "Week-by-week, you've got to pick up points in a positive manner. "We were inches away from getting a result (at Norwich), and their guy who has headed it off the line from Barry Bannan's effort was wonderful. "And Sebastian Bassong has had a bit of luck because nine times out of ten, it goes into the back of the net."
