Tony Pulis believes the deadline day arrival of Peter Crouch will help bring the best out of fellow Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones.

There is stiff competition for places in the Potters' forward line, with Crouch adding to the likes of Jonathan Walters, Cameron Jerome and Mamady Sidibie - Pulis hopes it will spur his Trinidad and Tobago internationl onto the next level.

Jones has missed the last three outings with a hamstring injury, but will hopefully be back fit and available for selection for the Barclays Premier League clash with Fulham following the international break.

"Kenwyne had been looking sharp again this season before his injury," Pulis told The Sentinel. "And us bringing in Peter Crouch will improve him.


"Peter is a top player and Kenwyne will learn from him. But Kenwyne is also a great player and I have great respect for him."

Pulis remains a huge fan of Jones' qualities and believes once he regains match sharpness that he is one of the Barclays Premier League's most lethal strikers.

"On his day he is unplayable and as good as anything in the Premier League," he enthused. "The competition will bring the best out of him."
