Pulis proud of Stoke players after Everton win

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was delighted with victory over Everton.

Robert Huth scored the only goal of the match, turning Dean Whitehead's 15th-minute shot past Tim Howard.

Stoke made it back-to-back league wins, sandwiched between a Europa League draw at home to Dynamo Kiev.

It was also only their second league victory on the back of a European match.

"This was a real battling performance against a good Everton team," said Pulis.

"It has been a great week for the club. To get six points and to qualify for the latter stages of the Europa League is first class.

"We have had a dip of form, which most clubs do, and we have shown a lot of character and spirit the last week and the result on Thursday against Kiev was a fantastic result for us."
