HULL, England (AP) — Peter Crouch scored the winner a minute after coming off the bench as Stoke defeated Hull 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

Crouch made an instant impact at the Britannia Stadium after being thrown on with 20 minutes to go.

The striker rose in the box to meet a delivery from fellow substitute Charlie Adam and send a header over Allan McGregor into the net for his ninth goal of the season and fourth in four appearances in all competitions.

Adam — following his introduction at halftime — went close to breaking the deadlock in the 58th minute with a free kick that whistled narrowly wide.

It's the sixth win in 11 league games for 10th-placed Stoke, while Hull's recent unbeaten run has been halted at three games.
