Pardew lauds Sako after debut goal

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew hailed Bakary Sako after the winger netted the winning goal in the Eagles' clash with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Sako, making his debut after leaving Wolves earlier this summer, secured a 2-1 victory for his new employers in the 87th minute, having twice been denied by opposition goalkeeper Brad Guzan earlier in the contest at Selhurst Park.

The story is too old to be commented.
