London: Marouane Chamakh (left)Marouane Chamakh's goal took Crystal Palace off the bottom of the Premier League table as they beat West Ham United 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.
