Rory Delap was repelled time and again by the Yorkshire club's defence, marshalled superbly by the highly-rated Turner.
"He has been concussed for the last three days and on tablets," revealed Brown.
"For a 6ft 4ins centre-half to be under that much pressure coming to Stoke is a slight worry of mine but he headed everything today.
"I thought he was fantastic. When you ask about Michael Turner for England, that was an England performance.
"We stood up to everything that was thrown into the box, crash helmets, whatever you want to call it and I was very proud of my defenders today.
"We should have come away with a clean sheet but for a dubious decision."
