Crystal Palace hauled themselves off of the foot of the Premier League table with a 1-0 win over West Ham United.
Tony Pulis took charge of the Eagles last month, but his reign began with a loss to Norwich.
His side bounced back one game later, with Marouane Chamakh coming up with the winner.
Chamakh came into the game in mixed form, as this tweet from OptaJoe highlighted.
But he connected with a Barry Bannan cross on 42 minutes to glance a header beyond Jussi Jaaskelainen.
West Ham have found scoring goals tough this season and they could not fashion a response, although they did have a Stewart Downing effort chalked off for an infringement.
It was a nervy finish for Palace and Jimmy Kebe missed a gilt-edged chance to provide a cushion when shooting over late on, but the home side held on for the win.
Eagles boss Pulis was delighted to see his side weather an early storm before getting themselves ahead.
Setanta Sports’ Jason Farrell has the quotes:
In the first 20 minutes we were on the back foot, we didn’t start well and looked pretty nervous but then we got into the game and I’m very pleased for Marouane Chamakh.
He has really worked hard. He and Cameron Jerome were a handful.
