Tony Pulis has left his post as manager of Crystal Palace, Press Association Sport understands.

According to BBC Sport, Pulis has been frustrated by the club failing to push through deals for various players he targeted to strengthen the Palace squad.

Pulis led Palace to survival in the top flight last season after inheriting a squad in turmoil in November, and was named the League Managers Association's Premier League manager of the year in May.

"I said the game would open up in the second half, and we'd have a chance," Pulis said.

"Then they get the two and, at 3-0, you're staring down the barrel. When we got the first goal, I thought we'd have a squeak.

"Then everything took off, it was amazing. When the second goal went in, it was just a matter of time until we got the third."

The win lifts Crystal Palace off the foot of the Barclays Premier League, but only three points from safety. Tony Pulis seems to be getting the best Marouane Chamakh and fellow forward Cameron Jerome, and he wants the duo to keep his side in with a shout of survival, adding:

"Chamakh and Cameron never stopped running. Their effort and commitment gave everyone a lift. Chamakh has got good quality and is a good player, he just needs some confidence and hopefully that goal will give him some confidence to grow into the player we need."
