Tony Pulis refused to admit that Crystal Palace are already safe from Premier League relegation after a comfortable win at Cardiff lifted them up to 14th in the table.

Jason Puncheon’s low drive in the 31st minute gave the Eagles a deserved lead, before Joe Ledley made it 2-0 in the 71st minute.

The season is not over and the biggest problem is complacency

And Puncheon then wrapped up the victory with a superb curling shot two minutes from full-time.

But despite the impressive manner of the win, Pulis insisted that the London club must keep their foot on the pedal.

“We have a lot of work to do,” said Pulis. “Some results have brought the pack together and we have got to keep focused, but it was a fantastic performance from the players.

“The season is not over and the biggest problem is complacency and people taking their foot off of the pedal.”

On two-goal hero Jason Puncheon, Pulis added: “He is a good player with lots of ability.

“He did a couple of sloppy things in the early part of the game and I went berserk on the touchline – but he was too far away for him to hear me.”
