Pulis shuns credit for subs

Published Add your comment

Stoke boss Tony Pulis admitted tiredness in his team had prompted his bold triple substitution in his side's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Everton - and was delighted with the way the move paid off.

The Potters fell behind in the 44th minute at the Britannia Stadium through Peter Crouch's own goal. At that stage the hosts had only really threatened with efforts stemming from the long throws of Rory Delap, but they were reinvigorated in the 67th minute when Pulis chose to make all three substitutions at once and hit back through fresh-legged Cameron Jerome.

Referring to the substitutions, Pulis said: "Sometimes you get them right, sometimes you don't. I'm standing here and I'm no genius - you don't know until they come on what effect they will have, and if anybody tells you any different, well then I'm telling you the truth."
