George Burley toasted a treble from James Vaughan after Crystal Palace got back to winning ways against Portsmouth.

The Eagles manager had seen his side lose their last four matches but they were inspired by Everton loanee Vaughan on his home debut and ran out 4-1 winners.

"James was excellent," said Burley. "I feel he will do very well for us, he's a very good striker, young, hungry and has a lot of good attributes."

He added: "It doesn't get much better than a hat-trick on your home debut so he'll be very pleased."

Vaughan opened his account in some style, latching onto Owen Garvan's square pass, turning in a flash and smashing the ball high into the net.

"His first goal was a great finish, he had his back to goal and swivelled and hit it into the top corner," said Burley.
