Tony Pulis pleased as Stoke's head boys lead the way in victory over Reading
Stoke City 2 Reading 1
Monday 11 February 2013
The Stoke City manager, Tony Pulis, is delighted with his defenders finding the net in recent weeks, after Robert Huth scored the opener in the Potters' 2-1 home victory over Reading, and the German's centre-back partner Ryan Shawcross scored in the 2-2 draw with Wigan on 29 January.
"Ryan scored last week, Huthy scored this week, and we are a team that relies on everybody in the group scoring goals," Pulis said.
"We had a sequence of about six or seven corners in the first half [against Reading] and you are waiting for Robert or Ryan to put their head on it."
Reading, like Swansea and Norwich, have travelled to Dubai for a warm weather training camp ahead of their FA Cup match at Manchester United next Monday.
