Stoke City boss Tony Pulis admits that his side still need three more points to secure their Premier League safety despite win over Queens Park Rangers.

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis still believes his side need three more points to secure their Premier League status despite beating Queens Park Rangers 2-0 today.

Goals from Peter Crouch and Jonathan Walters eased the pressure building on the Potters' boss as they moved six points clear of the relegation zone with four games to play.

Pulis told BBC Sport: "I still think there's hard work to be done. The pressure has built - we've had a poor 2013 but some of the performances have been very good but we haven't got the results.

"It takes a bit of pressure off but there is still pressure there and the four games we'll play are very tough games. 40 points will be enough because we have good goal difference. A win or three draws, I don't care how we cook it."

Stoke are now 15th in the Premier League following their victory at Loftus Road.
