Stoke City 1-3 Aston Villa: Potters need six more points - Pulis

Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes his side need six points from their remaining six games to ensure Premier League survival, following their 3-1 defeat by Aston Villa.

Michael Kightly cancelled out Gabriel Agbonlahor's opener for Aston Villa, but Matthew Lowton's scorching volley and Christian Benteke's calmly taken third sealed victory for the visitors at the Britannia Stadium.

The defeat extended Stoke's run without a league win to six matches.
