Sept 30 (Reuters) - Substitute Peter Crouch scored a late winner as Stoke City beat Southampton 2-1 on Saturday to claim their first Premier League victory since August.

The imposing former England forward poked home from close range in the 85th minute, 15 minutes after coming on, to seal only the second victory of the season for the Potters.

Maya Yoshida had appeared to rescue a point for Southampton after he fired home a 75th-minute equaliser to cancel out Mame Biram Diouf’s headed opener in the 40th minute.

Stoke’s Sadio Berahino missed a first-half penalty to extend his goalless streak to 30 games, while Southampton’s Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk — who submitted a transfer request in the summer — made his first start since January.
