Pulis fury at play-acting 'disease'
- From the section Football
Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes that players over-reacting to tackles is a "disease" affecting football, as Robert Huth is sent off in a 1-0 home defeat to Sunderland.
Huth saw red for a first-half lunge on David Meyler, and Sunderland made the extra man count when James McClean latched on to Stephane Sessegnon's through ball before applying a cool finish.
Pulis also renews calls for a winter break after the match was played "horrendous" snowy conditions.
