Pulis is manager of the month

Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis has been named the Barclays Premier League manager of the month for April.

The Eagles won four out of their five matches, including an impressive 3-2 victory at Champions League chasing Everton, and guaranteed their survival in the top tier with a 1-0 win at West Ham.

Pulis' side currently sit 11th in the table and 11 points clear of the bottom three.

Sunderland striker Connor Wickham was named player of the month.

The England Under-21 international scored five times in April to take his team out of the relegation zone, with doubles against Manchester City and Cardiff and one against Chelsea.
