Stoke assistant manager Dave Kemp declared himself and the dressing room delighted after the Potters secured a 1-1 draw against Manchester United yesterday.
Stoke had gone into the game having lost all six of their previous Premier League games against United and the game looked to be heading in a similar direction after Nani opened the scoring for United in the first half.
However, a spirited display from the Potters saw them grasp a draw through a Peter Crouch header and Kemp admitted he couldn’t have been happier.
“It’s a great result for us and the first time we have taken anything off Manchester United.” said Kemp.
“They were the last team in the Premier League that we haven’t got anything against.”
“Having played very well on a number of occasions against them without getting anything, today we did and we are delighted.”
Goal scorer Peter Crouch added that Stoke’s hard work was beginning to pay off:
“United are in top, top form and that win was down to hard work and that little bit of quality and that’s why we get those results.”
