Stoke City boss Tony Pulis admits he'd like to see Peter Crouch get amongst the goals.

But Pulis insists it's wrong to heap all the blame on Crouch and his strike partners.

He said: "It's one of the areas we have got to look at. I have fantastic respect for Peter. He's an absolute dream player to work with.

"Every day in training his enthusiasm is infectious, he trains with a smile on his face.

"People talk about the forwards, but Robert Huth and Ryan Shawcross haven't scored as many goals this season."
