Visitors West Brom led through James Morrison's first-half goal at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, with Cameron Jerome levelling for the hosts on 86 minutes.

Jonathan Walters had missed a penalty for the Stoke prior to Jerome's equaliser, and the away team managed to snatch all three points thanks to a last-minute Graham Dorrans free-kick.  

"I'm very pleased with the result, pleased with the performance, pleased with the travelling support; I thought they were excellent, so a very satisfying day," Hodgson said.

"When you lead for so long and you survive the penalty where your goalkeeper has made a great save, when it gets that close to the end you hope that it's going to lead to three points.

"When that goal goes in (Stoke's equaliser) you realise it's not going to be three points or there's a good chance it's not going to be three points, and furthermore the team that has that late goal often has that initiative and go and get a second one.

"But I think it was very strong of our team to come back and get the winning goal themselves when most people would have had Stoke down as the team with impetus."

Stoke boss Tony Pulis was disappointed by a subdued showing from his team, who had been undefeated from their last five matches in all competitions prior to Saturday's reverse.

"I thought it was a pretty flat performance from us, especially first half, I thought we were very, very flat," Pulis said.

"We've been on a great run lately and for some reason we started the game very flat.

"The two goals we've conceded are very disappointing from our point of view, they had very good opportunities and they rattled the bar a few times.

"They played five in midfield which two or three teams have come to our place and just sat in there and broke well.

"Second half we stepped it up a little bit, obviously the penalty miss is a disappointment, with 20 minutes to go."
