Stoke boss Pulis ready for Adam return

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is ready to recall Charlie Adam for the match with Manchester City.

The Scot has not played since the death of his father - Charlie Snr - a fortnight ago.

Former Liverpool midfielder Adam, 27, was granted compassionate leave by the club as he returned to Scotland to be with his family.

Pulis said: "It's very difficult to gauge how individuals react to losing a parent.

"But the good thing about this place is that the players are so close to each other. Him being around here, even sitting on the bench for a couple of games, takes his mind off it.

"But we'll be looking to freshen the team up."
