 We sorted one or two things out [at half-time], played with a lot more purpose and, apart from the penalty, I don’t think they made Thomas [Sorensen] do a lot. There was no excuse for the way we played [in the first half],

 The biggest thing with Kenwyne is consistency, he’s had runs of goals in games and we hope that continues. He keeps going, we have Ric [Ricardo Fuller], they’re so laid back it's frightening - it’s handling them in the right way. I thought it was a great game.

 I thought it was a good decision by the referee, he [Huth] didn't mean to do it,

 Stoke work their socks off and Tony [Pulis] gets the best out of his players every week. They never give you an easy game and there won't be many teams who come here and win this season.

 It's a tough place to come and win and a fantastic win for us. Tom Huddlestone had control of the game, we passed it in midfield and it was a fantastic second goal from Gareth. If anything, we should have gone in further ahead, I thought we should have scored just before half-time. You know you are going to come under pressure here, that's the way they play. The ball will come into the box in the second half, especially if you are 2-1 up. You know that and you have to deal with it. You will get scrambles if the ball keeps coming into your box enough times and you have to keep trying to get it away. You will be under pressure, it's difficult not to be and we knew that would happen.

 We deserved to win. In the first half, we passed it unbelievably. They couldn't get near us.

 The news is as good as we could have expected in the circumstances. We were obviously very concerned about the extent of the damage. But the tests have shown only minor ligament damage. We will assess Kenwyne's progress over the next few days so it is hard to say how long he will be out. We are talking days, though, not weeks or months.
