Crystal Palace need an influx of new players to boost their Barclays Premier League survival fight, according to manager Tony Pulis.

The former Stoke boss has challenged Palace's board to deliver a host of new faces to reinvigorate the Selhurst Park club's bid to avoid the drop.

Palace edged out Stoke 1-0 at home in league action on Saturday, Jason Puncheon netting the winner to shake off his horror-show penalty miss in last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Tottenham.

The Southampton loanee provided a calm second-half finish to light up an otherwise opportunity-light afternoon.

Pulis said Puncheon's resolve never wavered in the wake of his penalty nightmare, but the 27-year-old's palpable relief at full-time suggested otherwise.

Palace are yet to strike in the January transfer window despite being linked to a host of targets, including Brondby's towering Denmark international forward Simon Makienok.
