Stoke boss Pulis insists London Marathon won't disrupt Fulham preparations

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis insists his appearance in Sunday's London Marathon will not disrupt his preparations for Fulham the day before.

"Not a chance," he insisted to The Sentinel. "The Fulham match is first, second and third on my list of priorities.

"We have done brilliantly over the last few weeks, but only because we have all remained so focussed, and we still need some results to be sure of safety. And that begins at Fulham.

"Training for the run has actually helped me prepare for games in the last few weeks. When you're running 12 or 15 miles along the road, no-one can disturb you and you have a clear head.

"But I can assure you that all thoughts of Sunday are peripheral in my mind now. Only after that final whistle blows at Fulham will I start thinking about the run."
