Fulham manager Martin Jol praised new signing Pavel Pogrebnyak after his debut goal helped the west Londoners defeat Stoke 2-1.

But there was an entirely different reaction to the Russia international from Stoke boss Tony Pulis, who claimed the striker might have been sent off for a foul on Wilson Palacios.

Despite training with his new team-mates for the first time only two days ago, the 28-year-old fired home 16 minutes into his debut, with Thomas Sorensen's own goal helping Fulham to a 2-1 victory, and Jol said: "We had somebody over with him during the process of getting his work permit. He worked well and was fit."
