PULIS UPSET WITH DRAW
The Stoke city manager Tony Pulis has said that he is extremely disappointed with the sixth draw in the Premier league. Stoke city recently managed a 0-0 draw with Sunderland during the weekend. Even though they have avoided defeat against most of the teams in the Premier league, they have failed to get all the three points in most of the occasions. Stoke city could have easily lost the match after they could have conceded a penalty for the handball by the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough defender Robert Huth.
Speaking after the match, the Stoke city manager Tony Pulis said that he was extremely disappointed with the outcome of the match, and is hoping that the team receives a well-deserved break in the next few matches. Even though Sunderland defended extremely strongly throughout the match, he feels that Stoke city did enough to win the match. It was also yet another disappointment for the Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill, who has not seen any player other than Steven Fletcher score a goal for the club in this new season. They are currently in a difficult run of form and it looks set to continue after they could only manage a draw.
“I thought Sunderland defended really well and that their goalkeeper [Simon Mignolet] was outstanding. We needed a break. I’ve just looked at a few of the set plays in the first half and how two of them stay out, I just don’t know. It was always going to be a tight game. They are a good side – we certainly don’t look down our noses at Sunderland. He has gone to hospital straight away, so we are just waiting for confirmation of what it is,” said Tony Pulis regarding the result and the injury to Marc Wilson. The Republic of Ireland international had to be taken off in a stretcher.
