BBC Sport - Stoke 1-2 Crystal Palace: Alan Pardew praises his team's 'character'

Pardew praises Palace's 'character'

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.
