CRYSTAL Palace boss Tony Pulis was delighted to get a win on his managerial debut at home against West Ham United on Tuesday night. Maroaune Chamakh's goal shortly before the break gave the Eagles a vital three points in their quest to move out of the relegation zone. Speaking to the media after the game, Pulis says he wants Selhurst Park to become a "fortress". "It's a great result and what we have to do is obviously win games and put points on the board to give everybody hope," he said. "The supporters were wonderful, but you have to win these games to give them the opportunity and the chance to do what I've come here to do, which is keep the club up. "If you win games, you give them hope and the more hope you give them, the more they'll back the team. "They all have to buy into what we need and that is when teams come to Palace, it's got to be a fortress." And the boss once again hinted he will look to add to the squad in January but hailed the current group of players for grinding out victory against the Hammers. "The players have been fantastic," said Pulis. "The attitude of the players and the commitment of the players has been absolutely wonderful from the first minute I walked in. "We will need to strengthen the side. We need to bring a bit more quality into it and I think they will be absolutely delighted if we can do that. "Obviously we have to do that within what the club can afford. But we need to stay in the race before the window opens. "The resilience and the commitment was there. We had good organisation, we've worked really hard on trying to fill spaces and keep people in front and I thought we did that very well at times."
