Tony Pulis: "I've always got this thing in the back of my mind that when people say, 'Oh, he's made changes, he's been brilliant'.
"Why didn't I start with Michael Kightly, why didn't I start with Cameron? That's how brilliant I am.
"The lads have been fantastic, they've not played much this year but the spirit has been very good and their commitment to the group has been fantastic.
"Peter Crouch was caught in the mouth by a flailing arm from Fabio Coloccini.
"He wanted to carry on until he saw his teeth in the doc's hands, and then he nearly fainted.
"He'll need some work on that. I haven't seen it (the challenge) but I don't think there was any malice in it."
