Pulis unhappy with missed opportunity
Stoke boss Tony Pulis hit out at his misfiring stars as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat against struggling QPR on Sunday.
The Potters controlled large parts of the game as the home side struggled to cope with the pressure of needing a win to give themselves a chance of beating the drop. Stoke had chances and Cameron Jerome was guilty of missing possibly the best early on in the game before Rangers struck at the death through Djibril Cisse to take a 1-0 win. "We are desperately disappointed. I don't think we should have lost this game," Pulis told Sky Sports. "We had great opportunities right from the first whistle. Cameron has gone through, but all the opportunities and all the chances that we had, I don't think we hit the target once. "It's happened a lot of times this year, but the application and desire of the players is first class. I don't think anyone can question our commitment today. "We have really had a go at them. The disappointing thing is the final third. We've not been clinical enough and that has happened all season." Pulis has made finding a new striker one of his top priorities this summer and the need for one was there for all to see at Loftus Road.
