Potters boss backing striker

The forward fired wide of an open goal late in the first half but

Pulis has defended his 11-goal striker. Pulis told The Sentinel:

“It was most probably too easy a chance and he took his eye off the

ball. “But to be fair the ball did bounce up on a difficult surface

and with the wind blowing around – I hope I’ve done my best for him

there! “If Kenwyne had scored, we would probably have gone on from

there. Great scorers score great goals, but they miss easy chances

as well.”
