Pulis lauds 'British bulldog' Walters

Published Add your comment

Stoke boss Tony Pulis spoke of Jon Walters' "British bulldog spirit" after the Potters forward made an impressive return to form with two goals in this evening's 4-1 extra-time FA Cup third-round replay victory over Crystal Palace.

The 29-year-old's double in the additional period at the Britannia Stadium - which put his side 3-1 up - came three days after he had scored a brace of own-goals and missed a penalty in the 4-0 Barclays Premier League loss to Chelsea.

"I wasn't going to play Jon tonight - I had decided on Friday that I would give him a rest," Pulis said of the England-born Republic of Ireland international.
