Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis has revealed the success of Marouane Chamakh.

Pulis feels the once misfiring Moroccan, who has scored in each of his last three appearances will be pivotal to Crystal Palace's survival hopes.

"We have played him a different role," said Pulis of Chamakh's resurgence. "He has had more space and has blossomed with more opportunities to get on the ball.

"He is not playing with is back to goal. He has enjoyed it and done exceptionally well for us. His performances over the last three or four games have been quite outstanding."
