Stoke City winger Jermaine Pennant denies a row with manager Tony Pulis.

Pennant was left out of the squad entirely for the Potters' last two Barclays Premier League games against Everton and Tottenham, with academy product Ryan Shotton taking his place in the side.

He said: "He is keeping with his winning team. If the record isn't broken then you don't change it. We have won the last two (league) games so he is keeping that team. He's the manager.

"If I keep working hard and the team keeps winning, and I'm not playing, then I'm as happy playing as not. It's not all about individuals, it is about the team.

"I'm happy. There are no bad feelings so everything is fine."
