BIRMINGHAM, England — Brown Ideye's first-half goal gave West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 win over Stoke and handed Tony Pulis another victory over his former side.

The striker's seventh goal of the season settled the game to move the Baggies 11 points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

Pulis - who also beat Stoke 1-0 while at Crystal Palace last season - saw Albion recover from back-to-back defeats against Aston Villa.

They were also denied a penalty after Craig Dawson appeared to be fouled in the box and Ideye had a goal disallowed.

The Potters, who remain eighth, were poor but Jonathan Walters did force substitute goalkeeper Boaz Myhill into a smart second-half save.
