Tony Pulis played down his own role in Stoke's third consecutive home victory and instead praised his super subs as the Potters mounted a late comeback to beat Newcastle 2-1.

Papiss Cisse gave the visitors the lead two minutes after half-time and it looked like Alan Pardew's team would end their miserable run of three straight Barclays Premier League defeats but in the 81st minute Cameron Jerome crossed for Jonathan Walters to head in, and four minutes later two substitutes combined as Kenwyne Jones set up Jerome for the winner.

The Potters boss said: "The lads have been fantastic, they've not played much this year but the spirit has been very good and their commitment to the group has been fantastic."
