Stoke City manager Tony Pulis defends Rory Delap and long throw tactics after Wolves draw

Potters boss to continue with set-piece policy...

After witnessing his side's stalemate at Molineux, Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has come out in defence of his approach to the match, and stated that the use of the Rory Delap throw-ins will continue to be an integral part of his approach to their match tactics.

Speaking to the BBC after the match Pulis said: "It's a great weapon for us and we'll continue to use it, irrespective of whether people like it or not.

"We could have scored two or three goals from it today and the more other clubs moan and groan the more we'll use it."

In a game which saw few chances, Pulis will be pleased to have come away with a point despite early first-half pressure with the infamous Delap throw-in causing the Wolves backline infinite problems.

The result leaves Stoke in 10th place on 43 points; SWolves, meanwhile have 33 points and are currently six clear of the drop zone.
