Win helps Pulis shrug off selection debate

Stoke manager Tony Pulis praises his side's hard-working performance in the 2-0 win over Swansea and admits his players have been tired at times after their European campaign.

Pulis made 11 changes from the team that lost 1-0 in Valencia in the Europa League, but jokes that the only criticism that can be levelled at him is that his second string performed better against the Spanish side than his more experienced team did in the first leg.
