Tony Pulis warns against Crystal Palace complacency

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis warns his team not to "take their foot off the pedal" until the Eagles' survival is mathematically assured.

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis has warned his team not to "take their foot off the pedal" until their relegation battle is won.

The Londoners moved seven points clear of the drop zone with an emphatic 3-0 victory away to fellow strugglers Cardiff City this afternoon.

With just six games remaining, Pulis's charges look on course to preserving their Premier League status, but the 56-year-old insists that he will not rest until survival is mathematically assured.

Speaking to reporters in South Wales, the former Stoke City boss said: "We have a lot of work to do.

"Some results have brought the pack together and we have got to keep focused, but it was a fantastic performance from the players.

"The season is not over and the biggest problem is complacency and people taking their foot off of the pedal."

Jason Puncheon bagged a brace in the win, scoring either side of a Joe Ledley strike.
