Stoke City defender Ryan Shotton admits they targeted Swansea City's goalkeeper for their win on the weekend.

Shotton admitted Stoke deliberately targeted Swansea keeper Gerhard Tremmel, who came in at late notice for his Premier League debut after Michel Vorm was taken ill.

"I think that told," said Shotton. "He couldn't come for all the crosses and you have to put him under pressure when you've got a new goalkeeper in that hasn't handled the Brit before.

"We chucked a few throws in second half that didn't work but with the first one, you always hope one of them will get on the end of it and the keeper will hesitate or get a lucky ricochet. But this one went clean in off Crouch's head so it was good."
