WOLVERHAMPTON, England(AP) Peter Crouch scored the winner Saturday as Stoke won its fourth straight Premier League game after rallying in the second half to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 at Molineux.
Wolves enjoyed the brighter start and their endeavor paid off when they were awarded a penalty after Jonathan Woodgate brought down Matt Jarvis in the area in the 17th minute.
Stephen Hunt converted the spot kick to give the home side the lead but Wolves could not hang on to ease their relegation fears.
Kevin Doyle deflected Robert Huth's free kick into his own goal in the 58th to level the scores and Crouch completed the comeback 12 minutes later when he converted Matthew Etherington's cross from close range.
