Chamakh ends barren streak as Palace edge past West Ham

Crystal Palace striker Marouane Chamakh ended an 11-game barren streak to help them beat fellow Premier League strugglers West Ham United 1-0 in manager Tony Pulis's home debut on Tuesday.

Chamakh had not found the net since Palace lost to Stoke City on Aug 24 and had mustered only three shots on goal in 886 minutes of league football this season, but his glancing header in the first half proved decisive at Selhurst Park.

Palace moved above Sunderland, who play on Wednesday, to 19th on 10 points.
