Pulis Delighted With Three Points

Manager Tony Pulis has said he was utterly delighted to see the team come out with all three points following their efforts in today's game against West Bromwich Albion.

The win came courtesy of debut goals from two of our January deadline day signings, Tom Ince, and Joe Ledley and Marouane Chamakh added the third from the penalty spot later in the second half.

A big thing for Pulis, outside of the win today, was the performances of the debutants, and the way they slotted in so seamlessly to the rest of the squad after not having had a lot of time to work with their new colleagues.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC following the full time whistle being blown, the gaffer said.

'I was pleased but I think the biggest thing about Tom was actually his work and the way he did all the unglamorous stuff that good players do. He took his goal with aplomb and Joe header was first class. We are pleased with them and Dann.'

Pulis goes on to say that he's been delighted with the efforts of the existing squad, because they have been giving their all, so to see the newbies come in and show the same kind of desire and workrate was brilliant for him.

Having highlighted the efforts of the newbies, Pulis also took time to credit the group of players themselves, because it has been those players who have pulled us up the table since he came in, and our January additions will add quality and options to us, but the work they have done - especially with how we started the campaign - cannot and should not be overlooked, just because the debutants have started brightly.

'I'm pleased for the group, it's the group that's taken us to where we are at the minute and it's the group that will decide whether we stay in the league or not.'

It was a great win, and a much desired three points today, but as ever Pulis knows we have got some very tough games coming up, and whilst we can enjoy tonight, the hard work begins again shortly on preparing for our next match and hopefully achieving the same result to improve our points tally even more.

'I've managed in the Premier League for six years now and the one thing you must never do is get complacent. I'll be watching Everton tomorrow - they are our next opponents and we know how tough that is going to be. Then we follow that up with Manchester United.'

Very few would put money on us winning either game, although strange things do happen. We'll know doubt go into the matches coming up looking for maximum points, but I doubt many would be disappointed with a return of two points from those two games specifically.
