Palace boss Pardew convinced of more from 2-goal Gayle

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew was delighted with two-goal Dwight Gayle for victory at Burnley.

Pardew believes once striker Gayle finds his inner confidence he will be a real handful for Barclays Premier League defences.

"He just seems a very uncomplicated player," he said.

"He is very straightforward in his work; he is quick, good in the air, good attitude - blimey there is not much more you want.

"All he needs is experience and to grow in his confidence.

"When I had Jason Puncheon at Southampton he wasn't the player he is today.

"Because he has played in the Premier League he has that inner confidence he can play at this level and that is what players like Dwight Gayle need to find."
