Stoke midfielder Sidwell happy playing for Hughes

Stoke City midfielder Steve Sidwell is happy playing for manager Mark Hughes.

Sidwell worked with Hughes at Fulham.

"When I was at Fulham it was a short spell from January to the end of the season but it was exactly the same as it's been here," Sidwell told The Sentinel.

"He wants it to be fast, attacking football and if we lose the ball it's about short recovery runs and getting in to a shape to be hard to break down.

"He wants to play football that's pleasing on the eye and that was produced definitely towards the end of last season with Stoke and hopefully we can get back to that level."
