Marouane Chamakh says that Crystal Palace had to work hard for tonight's 1-0 victory over West Ham United at Selhurst Park.

Marouane Chamakh has hailed the defensive solidarity Crystal Palace showed in tonight's 1-0 victory over West Ham United.

The Moroccan international scored the only goal of the game - his second for the club - as the Eagles took all three points in Tony Pulis's first game in charge at Selhurst Park.

"We stayed strong and didn't give them the chances to score," BBC Sport quotes the 29-year-old as saying.

"I hope it will be like that every week until the end of the season."

The win lifts the South London side off the bottom of the Premier League.
