Pulis unsure over strikers

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is undecided over which of his strikers should start Saturday's clash with West Bromwich Albion. Pulis has lost five-goal top-scorer Ricardo Fuller to suspension for the visit of the side that pipped them to the Championship title last season. But the Potters boss is unsure whether to start with out-of-form £5million record signing Dave Kitson or one from Richard Cresswell and Vincent Pericard for a potentially vital game. Kitson has yet to find the net in 14 appearances for his new club following his summer arrival from Reading. "I haven't decided who I am going to go with yet," Pulis told the club's official website. "Kits is chomping at the bit because he is desperate to get his first goal, but we also have Cressy and Vincent who are both desperate to play. "We will miss Ricardo because he is a livewire and is capable of turning the game on its head with a moment of magic. "He has really enjoyed playing against West Brom over the past few years and if you look at his goal-scoring record against them it is second to none. "But we have players who are capable of coming in and doing a good job."
