Peter Crouch say he has been made to feel wanted at Stoke City by manager Tony Pulis.

Crouch made his debut in yesterday's victory over Liverpool.

"I was his No.1 target and he made me feel wanted," Crouch said. "I know I am going to play a big part in Stoke's future."

Stoke's pair of flying wingers also promise to bring the best from Crouch. "Whenever I've done well in my career, I have had good wide men," he said.

"Matt Etherington and Jermaine Pennant are out and out wingers and I'm sure they will get balls into the box and I'm sure I can do well there."
