Crouch was introduced as an 82nd minute substitute and subsequently scored a 90th minute header to secure a 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Sunday.

Crouch began Sunday's match on the bench in wake of teammate Jonathan Walters coming off a hat-trick last weekend, but by finding the back of the net himself Sunday, Crouch could be in contention for a start Wednesday versus Manchester City. Regardless, Crouch's latest goal brought him level with fellow striker Mame Diouf with five in the league this season, ranking only behind Walters for Stoke's team lead of seven.
