Stoke boss Tony Pulis has called on new signing Michael Kightly to bag his fair share of goals this season.

Kightly ended five and a half years with Wolves on Wednesday by joining Stoke for an undisclosed fee, swiftly agreeing personal terms and passing a medical. The 26-year-old scored 24 goals during his time at Molineux, and an additional three in 12 appearances whilst on a three-month loan with Watford last term.

Pulis said: "I've long been an admirer of Michael, not only in terms of him being a provider, but also the fact he gets his share of goals. Our two wingers, Matthew Etherington and Jermaine Pennant, have been brilliant for this football club over the past few years. But they went off the boil in terms of goalscoring last season, so we wanted to address that."
