Pulis shrugs off Stoke boo boys

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis refused to snap back at away fans after their 2-2 draw at Wigan Athletic.

Stoke fans had a ­surprising pop at boss Pulis at Wigan yesterday, even though the Potters came back twice for another valuable Premier League point.

A section of Stoke's travelling army of supporters chanted "You don't know what you're doing" after Pulis took off new signing Michael Kightly.

But Pulis, whose side have graced the top-flight for five seasons now and who played in the Europa Cup last season, took it all on the chin.

He said: "I'm big, ugly and strong enough to take it. Kightly looked a bit tired and we had to bring him off near the end. But people have their ­opinions and they pay good money to come and watch us. It's fair pressure."
