Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock says Tony Pulis has left behind a squad full of character

CRYSTAL Palace manager Neil Warnock praised his predecessor Tony Pulis for leaving him with a squad full of "character and determination" after the late fightback at Newcastle.

The Eagles earned a point in a thrilling encounter thanks to Wilfried Zaha's fairytale injury time equaliser in his first game back at the club.

And Warnock was full of praise for his players - and despite admitting he'd like to add as many as four new faces before the transfer deadline passes tomorrow, he seems pretty happy with the squad he's inherited.

He said: "They're just a great bunch, I'm absolutely chuffed with their attitude. 

"I usually have to build a squad like this but Tony must have done a fabulous job because they've got so much character and determination and they can play a bit as well."

On the game, which Palace led twice before slipping to 3-2 down until Zaha's 95th minute leveller, Warnock said: "I felt at half time that we'd been disappointing in the final third. We'd rushed a little bit and I thought we could be better in that area, which we were second half.

"They were poor goals to concede but I can't fault the effort."

And Warnock also explained his approach too getting Zaha back firing and form - it's all about smiling.

"If he enjoys himself and relaxes and plays with a smile on his face he'll be a threat anywhere," he said.
