Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was disappointed by the criticism of West Brom counterpart Tony Mowbray after victory yesterday.

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was disappointed by the criticism of West Brom counterpart Tony Mowbray after victory yesterday.

Stoke won through a late Mamady Sidibe goal and were later criticised by Mowbray for their style of play.

Pulis was pleased with his side's efforts in collecting a fourth successive home victory and rejected suggestions that the game failed as a spectacle.

"Tony has only got to speak for his own side," he said.

"They've not had a shot on goal, so I can understand where he is coming from. I thought we played some good stuff today.

"People talk about different philosophies. They say we are different in what we do and what we don't do.

"Well, I don't like my team to go back then square, back then square. I like them to play through the pitch.

"If we can do that then we will. If not we'll play the angles and play to our strengths."
