Stoke chairman Coates pleased with progress under Hughes

Stoke City chairman Peter Coates says they're happy with the progress of the team under manager Mark Hughes.

Stoke were thumped at Everton on Saturday.

"It's been a transitional period, as it always is with a new manager, but we've been impressed with Mark," said Coates. "If we were to win [against Cardiff] we'd be about where we expect to be. People will always start asking questions after you've lost 4-0 but we were unfortunate to lose by that score."
