Stoke defender Wilkinson feeling in great form

Andy Wilkinson was delighted with his performance for Stoke City in their victory over Portsmouth.

For many, it could be his best yet in a Stoke shirt, but he modestly said: "It's right up there, but it's not for me to say.

"I still have to pinch myself every time I'm out there. Every time the fans chant my name it gives me the shivers."

Wilkinson must now sweat on his chances of retaining his right-back berth at Blackburn on next Saturday, when Abdoulaye Faye's return from suspension gives boss Tony Pulis various options.

"I'd like to think I've got a chance, but I respect the gaffer's decisions," he told The Sentinel.
