Peter Crouch netted twice as Stoke registered their first win of the season by defeating Swansea at the Britannia Stadium.

The striker scored both goals in the first half, with slack defending by the visitors allowing him to head in Glenn Whelan's corner in the 12th minute.

Nine minutes before the break, Crouch again found little resistance in the Swansea box as he fired the ball at Michel Vorm and reacted to convert the rebound, taking his tally for the campaign to five goals in all competitions.
