CRYSTAL Palace manager Tony Pulis was full of praise for Marouane Chamakh, after the striker netted his second goal in as many games in the win over Cardiff. The former Arsenal striker has come in for some high-profile criticism since joining Palace, from the likes of Match of the Day host Gary Lineker and pundit Alan Hansen. But the Moroccan seems to be finding his feet, netting the winner in midweek against West Ham before bagging another goal today as Cardiff were brushed aside in SE25. Pulis said: "I thought Marouane Chamakh was brilliant today - he was my man of the match." On the overall performance, the new boss added: "They're a good group of lads and we have worked a lot on shape and things I think is essential to give you a chance and the players have responded well. "You've always got a chance if you get yourself organised. We can't get carried away. "We've a tough run of games now ahead of Christmas. Staying up is a massive ask and a massive task."
