Stoke boss Tony Pulis insists he has "not turned into a genius" despite seeing his substitutes play the key role for the second time in four days in a 1-0 win at West Brom.
The Potters manager introduced Michael Kightly and Dean Whitehead against the Baggies and the pair combined for the latter to score a 75th-minute goal.
It sealed Stoke's first away victory in 17 league games since January when they triumphed at Blackburn and Pulis said: "We've been fortunate with the substitutes during the last two games. I've not turned into a genius. It's just the little bit of luck you need."
