Pulis pleased with improving Potters

03 Oct 2010 - 10:41:25

Tony Pulis believes Stoke City have overcome a sticky start to the season and are ready to kick on following Saturday's 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Jon Walters' 48th-minute winner earned the Potters a third win from their last four games.

Stoke lost their opening three games of the season but Pulis claims that nobody at the Britannia Stadium was unduly concerned with their early form.

"The start of the season was always going to be difficult," he explained. "There was the local derby at Wolverhampton, then playing Chelsea and Tottenham.

"We accepted that it was going to be a tough start but the lads got through it and we know there will be periods like this."

Speaking about Saturday's victory over Rovers, Pulis added: "The one thing you get with Blackburn is a performance every week and that's a credit to their players and the manager.

"They get lots of balls into the box and they're a big team but I thought we created some good opportunities and on another day we could have capitalised on more of them. But I think we just about deserved to win."
