Manager Neil Warnock saluted the impact of Craig Beattie on Crystal Palace's season after the on-loan striker's goal settled the London derby against Charlton.
Beattie, making his home debut after joining on a month's loan from West Brom last week, injected some Premier League quality into a typically frenetic clash as Palace beat their fierce rivals for the first time in 13 years.
"He has given us something over the last two games," said Warnock, who is without regular strikers Alan Lee and James Scowcroft through injury.
He added: "He only came in on Thursday, had one session on Friday and then played out of his skin in the draw at Ipswich as well, and continued that.
"It works well for both of us. He needs some games and he's come in at the right time for us. We are playing 20 or 30 yards further up the pitch now and getting a lot more of the ball. It's been a great two weeks for us."
