Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has again praised the Brittania fans after their victory over Sunderland.

He said: "I think we have got a unique situation at the club in the respect that the supporters actually realise the league we are playing in and we need their help.

"When you are playing against (Roman) Pavlyuchenko three weeks ago and then you play against Robinho on Sunday and then Djibril Cisse against Sunderland, it is just so far away from what the Championship is and they really get behind the team and the club. I think it is unique.

"The noise that they made against Sunderland, especially in the last five or six minutes of the game, was amazing."
