Stoke City chief scout Lindsay Parsons confesses he's not a fan of their style of play.

Parsons has worked with Tony Pulis at Gillingham, Bristol City, Portsmouth, Plymouth and Stoke, but admits he doesn't always see eye to eye with the Potters manager over some footballing principles.

He told the Gloucestershire Echo: "We have loads of disagreements because I don't like the way they play and I will never change on that."
