Pulis thrilled with Stoke response

Stoke boss Tony Pulis praised his side for bouncing back from a slow start in the Europa League with a 2-1 win over Besiktas on Thursday.

The Potters conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 at Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev in their Group E opener, but fought back from a deficit against Turkish side Besiktas to record a valuable win at Britannia Stadium on Thursday.

Pulis said backing up well from a tough Premier League clash against Manchester United last weekend was also pleasing.

“We are delighted. We played Manchester United on Saturday (1-1 home draw) and had to do a lot of work against them as they are great side,” Pulis said.

“Besiktas too are a very good side and have far more European experience than us and I am absolutely delighted.”

“Everybody seemed proud to play and everybody was up for it tonight.”

Stoke are participating in European competition for the first time since 1975, and Pulis believes the club is deserving of its place in the competition.

“Stoke always deserved a place in Europe. This is new to them and they are looking forward to it. We have to make the best of these opportunities,” Pulis said.
