Crouch scores winner as Stoke beats Wolves 2-1

Peter Crouch scored the winner Saturday as Stoke won its fourth

straight Premier League game after rallying in the second half to

beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 at Molineux.

Wolves enjoyed the brighter start and their endeavor paid off

when they were awarded a penalty after Jonathan Woodgate brought

down Matt Jarvis in the area in the 17th minute.

Stephen Hunt converted the spot kick to give the home side the

lead but Wolves could not hang on to ease their relegation


Kevin Doyle deflected Robert Huth’s free kick into his own goal

in the 58th to level the scores and Crouch completed the comeback

12 minutes later when he converted Matthew Etherington’s cross from

close range.
