Football: Chamakh goal takes Crystal Palace off bottom
LONDON (AFP) - Marouane Chamakh's goal took Crystal Palace off the bottom of the Premier League table as they beat West Ham 1-0 in Tony Pulis's first home game in charge at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.
Chamakh scored the only goal of the game - the Moroccan's first since August 24 - when he headed in Barry Bannan's curling cross in the 42nd minute.
The striker had previously scored just one goal this season - although that was still one goal more than he managed in five months on loan at West Ham last term.
West Ham came into this all London clash boosted by a 3-0 win over Fulham but have still to record back-to-back Premier League wins since being promoted last year.
