Stoke boss Pulis wants to keep record of no relegation

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has never suffered relegation as manager and is perhaps a point away from maintaining their Premier League status.

Pulis said: “I’m proud of the record and it will be a magnificent achievement, not just for myself but for the chairman and club.

“If we can get a result and over the 40-point mark, we would have almost crossed the line.

“It would be my biggest achievement in management if we stayed up.

“This season we’ve walked into stuff we’ve not encountered before so it’ll be great to get out the other side.”
