Palace striker Chamakh not bothered by lack of goals

Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh has shrugged off his poor goalscoring record this season.

A lack of goals means Chamakh's performances have largely gone under the radar but his work rate and link-up play were key to last weekend's 3-1 win against Liverpool.

The Moroccan says he is happy with the role he is playing and insists his lack of goals is not a concern.

"No, not at all," he said. "I am not focused only on goals. If I have one goal at the end of the season and I am enjoying my football, it will be like that. I am working hard and it is not like I am a proper striker and I shoot to score every game."
