Palace beat Hammers

6:15 am on 5 December 2013

Crystal Palace has moved off the bottom of the English Premier League football table after beating West Ham 1-0 at Selhurst Park.

The win gave new manager Tony Pulis a win on his home debut.

Former Stoke boss Pulis, who lost his first game in charge at Norwich City at the weekend, has never been relegated in 21 years as a coach and will have relished seeing his new charges claw themselves off the foot of the table.

Palace move above Sunderland, who play Thursday, to 19th spot on 10 points, three points behind 15th-placed West Ham.
