Gardner hails massive win

Craig Gardner (pictured) hailed a "massive" win for West Brom at Crystal Palace on Saturday as the Baggies eased their relegation fears.

The midfielder scored a spectacular strike as former Palace boss Tony Pulis enjoyed a 2-0 win on his first return to Selhurst Park.

The Welshman left Palace on the eve of the new season and has since taken over at the Hawthorns - with three points in south London crucial, as his side had lost their three previous games the Premier League.

But Gardner, whose trademark second-half goal added to James Morrison's early header, knows the job is still not yet complete even if West Brom now sit eight points clear of the bottom three. "The gaffer has given us the target of 40 points.

"We had two or three bad results on the spin and it's nice to get a win over the line after those," he said.
