Danny Pugh admits he could ask away from Stoke City.

"It's been horrible being out of the team, to be honest," said Pugh. "It's been a devastating start to the season for myself.

"You've just got to try to stay fit and then, if the chance does come along, you have to take it. I don't think I've been given much of a chance. I've had two cup games, but apart from that I haven't had a look-in.

"We'll have to see what happens, but I am at that stage of my career when I need to be playing and not stuck in the stands every week.

"It's different when I was at United and not getting a game because I was only 20 or 21 when I left, but now I'm 26."
