Crystal Palace striker Cameron Jerome has called on his team-mates to follow up their victory against Chelsea with a win at Cardiff City next week. 

This was Palace's first victory over the Blues in nearly 24 years, and thanks to a John Terry own goal, Tony Pulis' eagles now sit in 16th, four points clear of the drop zone. 

And with a further three points on offer against relegation-threatened Cardiff City next week, its is an excellent chance for the Eagles to gain to move even closer to Premier League survival. 

But Jerome is refusing to get carried away, and knows that his side still have work to do in order to secure their Premier League safety. 

"In respect of who it's against, it's a big win, but it means nothing if we go to Cardiff next week and get beat," Jerome told Crystal Palace's official website. 

"We can't get carried away. We know we've got seven games to go and we've got to make sure we put in the same level of performance for the rest of the season and pick up enough points to stay in the Premier League."

Even Blues manager Jose Mourinho praised the work of Pulis' side but Jerome feels that his team-mates did everything possible to secure victory.

"It's a great result for us. The boys  were fantastic. Everyone did their job and worked really, really hard. We created some really good chances in the second half and I think overall we deserved something from the game," Jerome added. 

Cardiff earned what could prove a vital point with dramatic late goal against West Brom in a 3-3 yesterday.
