Bolasie unfazed by Crystal Palace plight

The Eagles dropped to the bottom of the Premier League table following their 2-0 loss to Tottenham, but the winger is confident in Tony Pulis' abilities to improve their fortunes
Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is not worried about the club's precarious position in the Premier League table.

The Selhurst Park outfit dropped to the bottom of the league on Saturday following a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane and wins for fellow strugglers West Ham and Sunderland.

6/4 Crystal Palace are 6/4 with William Hill to avoid relegation
But under new manager Tony Pulis, Palace have won four of their last nine, and Bolasie is confident they will continue to turn things around.

"We have been at the bottom of the table before and the boys are not discouraged," Bolasie told reporters.

"Our next game is at home against Stoke - the gaffer's [Pulis'] former team - so I am sure he will be fired up for it and the boys will be as well."

Bolasie also said that winger Jason Puncheon will not be affected by his horrific penalty miss at White Hart Lane.

Puncheon fired high and wide from the spot but Bolasie said: "Jason is alright. He doesn't really get down. I think he will be quickly back to himself again."
