Stoke boss Tony Pulis is looking for three points against Fulham on Saturday followed by a successful London Marathon the following day. "I know I will get around the course a little bit easier if we have a good day on Saturday," said the 51-year-old.
"I am struggling with training. It is really hitting me after about 15 miles but I will dig in and give it everything I have got and make sure I get there.
"I am not looking at a specific time. I just want to make sure I get round the course and take a good amount of money to a superb charity."
