Stoke City manager Tony Pulis backs Charlie Adam to rediscover the goalscoring form that he enjoyed during his time at Blackpool.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has backed Charlie Adam to rediscover the goalscoring form that he enjoyed during his time at Blackpool.

The 26-year-old midfielder found the net 12 times in 35 Premier League appearances for the Tangerines in the 2010-2011 season, but he has yet to score for the Potters in seven matches.

"I expect him to get goals and I think he will," said Pulis. "If anything, I think he's trying too hard. He's got to relax a little bit and enjoy his football a little bit more.

"He's a very enthusiastic lad and I think he is one of the reasons we have played a lot better this year - and a lot more expansive.

"We'll persevere with him because we believe in him. I'm sure he'll come good."

Stoke are currently the fifth-lowest scorers in England's top division, finding the net just eight times in nine matches.
