Potters start concerns Pulis

17 Aug 2008 - 11:11:30

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis accused his side of naive defending after they lost their Premier League opener 3-1 at the hands of Bolton Wanderers.

The Potters' first taste of top-flight football since the 1984/5 season began on the wrong foot as they found themselves 3-0 down at half-time at the Reebok Stadium.

Pulis' side improved after the break but only found the net in stoppage time through a Ricardo Fuller consolation.

"We were looking fine in the first 25 minutes but we dropped our heads after the first goal," he said.

"The other two goals were disappointing - they came from set-pieces and were were naive in both situations.

"I think the scoreline is a bit harsh as one or two things did not go our way."
