Stoke 0 West Brom 0

Stoke manager Tony Pulis admitted his club's lack of goals is becoming a major concern following this home stalemate with West Brom.

The result brought a three-game losing streak to an end for the Potters, but Pulis was frustrated that the hosts – who have only 27 goals to their name from their 30 top-flight matches this term – had not been able to find the net.

There were few clear-cut chances throughout, although Stoke substitute Kenwyne Jones passed a good one up in stoppage-time when he fired straight at Ben Foster.

"We got into some fantastic positions and that final ball, or the movement, didn't lead to the goal we need. That was disappointing," said Pulis.

Albion boss Steve Clarke, whose team remain eighth, gave a blunt assessment of the encounter, summing it up by saying: "Poor game, good point."
