Pardew praises Palace's 'character'
- From the section Football
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew praises the "character" of his side as they had to 'dig deep' to come from behind and beat Stoke 2-1 at the Britannia.
Mame Diouf had put Stoke ahead with a cool finish, but Glenn Murray's penalty and Wilfried Zaha's low strike secured the three points.
36 points from 30 games is Crystal Palace's best record at this stage of a top-flight campaign since 1991/92.
