CRYSTAL Palace boss Tony Pulis believes there will be a bit of "spice" in Tuesday's London derby against West Ham United. The Eagles kick-off at Selhurst Park at 8pm and Pulis admitted he's looking forward to the atmosphere created from home fans. "It's going be tough, and the supporters have been absolutely magnificent too," he said. "People have told me what it's like (at Selhurst Park) and I'll have a chance to say 'thank you' tomorrow. "The fact that it's a local derby gives it a little bit more spice. "With Sam (Allardyce) in charge, you always know what you're going to get. "I don't think he gets the credit he deserves. He's a top manager in the Premier League. "Everybody has so many high expectations now and Sam has stabilised the ship there. "He got them promoted and they've got some top players. He's invested very well. "They have been unfortunate with Andy Carroll (through injury), and I'm sure if he was playing, they would be in a better position than what they are now." On his own team, Pulis was happy with Saturday's second half performance in particular at Norwich City and believes with the crowd behind the players, they can hopefully take advantage. He said: "What we need is a break. There are incidents in that game (Norwich) where things could have gone for us but didn't go for us. "What we need to make sure we change that and turn that. It's those fine lines, especially in both boxes. "The performance was very good, as an away performance. I think the players took a lot out of it as well. "Our home form is vital. If we get the crowd behind us tomorrow, which I'm sure we'll get, and we get a couple of breaks, fingers crossed we can get a result."Tune in to our Twitter account @AdvertiserSport for live updates from 7.30pm tomorrow night.
