Pulis waxes lyrical about Crouch

Published Add your comment

Stoke boss Tony Pulis praised Peter Crouch for his impact on and off the pitch after the striker netted both goals in Monday's 2-1 victory at Blackburn.

The 30-year-old's summer move from Tottenham was a sign of how far the Potters have come since their promotion to the Barclays Premier League in 2008 and he has repaid them with eight goals, notching his 100th league strike on Monday.

Crouch joined Stoke from Spurs in the summer along with Jonathan Woodgate and Wilson Palacios, and Pulis is thrilled with how they have settled, saying: "Crouch has been fantastic. I thought him and Woodgate were very good [on Monday] and they've got great quality."
