Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has admitted striker Peter Crouch has been left frustrated by his lack of first-team football this season.

Crouch impressed on a rare start last weekend in the draw with Sunderland and could feature again at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The former England frontman has made just ten league appearances this season but is yet yo find the back of the net.

Peter played really well last week.

It didn't surprise me, I said after the game that he is a good player that I have probably disappointed more than most this season just because we had new players in the building and we needed to get them up to speed in the Premier League and sometimes that has restricted his opportunities in the Premier League.

He has had decent appearances during the season but not enough starts in the Premier League he will feel, but he came in and did what he always does, he has done himself no harm (towards being picked against Palace).
