Return of Chamakh as Crystal Palace revival continues
Norwich are up to 13th after an away win over West Brom.

MAROUANE CHAMAKH HAS not hit the target often for Crystal Palace this season but makes his shots count.

The Moroccan scored a second-half goal for Palace to secure a home win over Cardiff. The former Arsenal striker has four shots on target in the Premier League this season and three have resulted in goals.

Chamakh’s second-half strike came after Barry Bannan had whipped in a dangerous cross that was only partially cleared by Ben Turner. Cameron Jerome had opened the scoring for Tony Pulis’ side after six minutes of play.

The result sees Palace on 13 points and in 18th place in the league. They remain behind West Ham, who lost 4-1 to Liverpool today, due to an inferior goal difference.

Shane Long came on for the Baggies at half-time and went close with a header in the closing stages. However a goal was not forthcoming for the home side and the Canaries extended their advantage late in the piece.

Norwich streamed forward on the break and Fer was given the freedom of the WBA box before slotting home well.
