Tony Pulis is optimistic Charlie Adam will start making a regular goalscoring contribution after opening his account against QPR.
Adam got his first Potters goal by slamming home the winner from Jon Walters' flick-on in the 1-0 victory over QPR at the Britannia Stadium on November 10.
Pulis made it clear when he signed the Scotland midfielder from Liverpool on transfer deadline day this year that he was looking for goals from Adam, who expressed a keen desire himself to rediscover the good finishing form he had demonstrated for Blackpool but not for the Reds.
And with the 26-year-old's Stoke duck now broken, his manager can see more goals following.
Speaking ahead of this evening's Barclays Premier League clash with West Ham at Upton Park, Pulis said: "We think Charlie is a good finisher and that he should be getting goals.
"You are hoping that it is another goalscorer in the team and he showed that on Saturday. What Charlie needs to get used to is getting up around there, but if we can get him in the final third, I think he will score goals for us."
