Pulis was more than happy for Suarez to claim the goal.
"If I was Kenny, if he (Suarez) was half-a-yard anywhere near the ball I'd be saying it was his goal," he said.
"We are quite happy for the lad to have it.
"I watched him in the World Cup and in games for Ajax and he's a wonderful player - but give him a bit of time."
On the game itself he added: "We did okay for the first half but to concede just after half-time knocked us.
"But up until the second goal I thought we were in the game."
