Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is taking the Capital One Cup seriously.

The Potters face Walsall tonight.

"I don't give up competitions lightly," Hughes said.

"We want to do well in it and we want to progress in it, so I'll be putting out a strong team. There will be one or two changes but nothing wholesale."
