​Pulis stunned as 1,000th game as manager is against former club Stoke

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has said it is "amazing" that his 1,000th game in management will be at former side Stoke City.

Pulis had two spells as Potters boss, leading them to the Premier League in 2008.

He said: "Getting to 1,000 games in management, for the game to drop at Stoke, it's amazing really.

"When I come out of football I'll look back and think of my 1,000 games as an achievement. Now it's just the next game for me.

"I have been privileged and honoured to have managed a lot of clubs on the way to taking charge of 1,000 games."
