Stoke City chairman Peter Coates doesn't want any slacking for their final game of the season.

Coates warns there is serious money to play for at Southampton on Sunday when around £5m could be riding on the final fixture of the season.

"The money available nowadays is enormous and that makes this such an important game for the football club," said Coates.

"Every game is important, but this one shows just how important financially, and professional players should always turn up with the right attitude."
