Crystal Palace defender Joel Ward says the club has transformed under manager Tony Pulis.

Crystal Palace defender Joel Ward says the club has transformed under manager Tony Pulis.

Pulis has brought about an impressive upturn in fortunes since taking over from caretaker Keith Millen who was in charge for four games following the departure of Ian Holloway.

“When you are in this situation you need to fight and the Newcastle game is massive for us,” said defender Ward.

“We have a great bunch of guys, a good manager and we are starting to really click and form an identity in the way we play. We are hard to break down and we can hurt teams. Now we will keep moving forward, keep building and can turn the season around.

“We need to have that belief and confidence to express ourselves, play, be resilient, give everything we have and show that never-say-die attitude.

“Every manager has a way in which they want to play. As we grow with the new staff and manager we form an identity and get more confident.

“We will learn from each other in how we go about different scenarios and build step by step.”
