PLAYERS: Tony Pulis
Crystal Palace reacted to the hiring of Tony Pulis as manager hours before kickoff by beating Hull 1-0 on Saturday, earning only a second win of the Premier League campaign to lift the team off the bottom of the standings. Palace overcame the 78th-minute sending-off of Yannick Bolasie to score the only goal three minutes later, with Barry Bannan netting from close range following Cameron Jerome's cross. Caretaker manager Keith Millen hands over to Pulis with Palace now above Sunderland on goal difference, and the new coach's record of never having been relegated will give the Londoners renewed hope of staying up. Hull slumped to a first home loss of the season and barely threatened Palace's goal until after Bolasie was harshly given a straight red for fouling Jake Livermore.
