Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is closing in on the select bunch of players who has scored 100 or more Premier League goals.

The game yesterday evening at the Bet365 Stadium saw Crouch moved to within two goals of the 100 barrier as he helped us to a two nil victory over Watford and first win in six outings and it was the 35 year old’s second goal in as many games.

Two more and he becomes the 17th Englishman to make the 100+ elite Premier League club.

Speaking to the Official Website in his own post game press conference, manager Mark Hughes was obviously delighted with a few things on the night not least Crouch nearing his century of strikes.

‘I really do hope Peter can get to his century of goals because it’s something that’s important to him. He wants to be one of the few English or British strikers to score 100 Premier League goals and he deserves to get there because he’s been a top striker for a long time and I think he will do it.’

Hughes went on to say.

‘This is my fourth season here and I haven’t seen any diminishing in the qualities of Peter Crouch since I’ve been here and I don’t anticipate anything untoward in that regard.’

With 188 goals overall in his career if he gets the game time it shouldn’t take him too long to reach 100 Premier League strikes and 200 overall in his career.
