Kingston Upon Hull, United Kingdom: Crystal Palace gave new manager Tony Pulis the perfect welcome present as the Eagles climbed off the bottom of the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Hull on Saturday.

Pulis was confirmed as Palace's choice to succeed Ian Holloway just hours before kick-off at the KC Stadium and the former Stoke boss was in the stands to watch his side clinch just their second win of a dispiriting campaign.

Palace, beaten in nine of their previous 11 league matches, looked in trouble again when winger Yannick Bolasie was sent off for a foul on Jake Livermore in the closing stages.
