Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has revealed how rival Premiership managers have been stunned by the atmosphere at the Brit.

He told The Sentinel: "There will be times when we feel sorry for ourselves because there will be ups and downs. What we need more than anything is our supporters sticking with us and so far they have been absolutely magnificent and come through with flying colours.

"I have spoken with Scolari and Ramos and they were amazed by the atmosphere here.

"Night games have always been good and I just hope we get stuck in and give them something to really shout about."
