Pulis blames 'sloppy' defending

Stoke boss Tony Pulis says his side need to "get back to basics" after they threw away a two-goal lead to slip to a 2-2 draw with Wigan.

Ryan Shawcross's close-range volley gave Stoke the lead, and early in the second half Peter Crouch poked in a second, but minutes later Wigan hit back, as James McArthur fired in off the post and Franco Di Santo equalised.

Wigan's fightback lifted them out of the relegation zone and condemned Stoke to their fifth consecutive Premier League game without a win.
