Gabbidon praises Crystal Palace strike duo Chamakh & Jerome

The centre-back has lauded the form of the Eagles' revitalised forward partnership under new boss Tony Pulis and believes the pair complement each other perfectly
Danny Gabbidon has praised Marouane Chamakh and Cameron Jerome for helping Crystal Palace turn their fortunes around under Tony Pulis.

The front two have scored four goals in the last three Premier League matches as the Selhurst Park outfit moved off the bottom of the table.

7/4 Crystal Palace are 7/4 with William Hill to stay up
Chamakh has netted in three consecutive games and formed an excellent understanding with Jerome, and Gabbidon has commended both men for raising their game.

"It's been a partnership," he told the club's official website. "Cam [Jerome], he came into the team and has kind of helped him [Chamakh]. I think they complement each other quite well.

"Chamakh is someone who does like to come and drop off, a bit more than the main striker. He works ever so hard for the team.

"It's nice to see him now picking up a few goals. I think his performance, his work-rate, have deserved that.

"I think the difference maybe that now he is getting into a few more positions which is allowing him to score goals.

"That's probably changed with the new manager coming in now. So hopefully he can continue to do that for us."

Back-to-back wins over West Ham and Cardiff City have seen Pulis' side climb up the table and leave them just a point from safety.
