Wilkinson ready to battle any new Stoke signing for first team spot

Stoke City fullback Andy Wilkinson is ready to battle any new signing for a first team place next season.

The local lad told The Sentinel: "The manager will do what he can again to keep the club up next season. If that means bringing in more players I am sure he will do that.

"If he brings in another right-back, then it's another one to move out of the way.

"I am going to want that place and will push on and be working hard in the summer. No-one expected me to be in the team with the club captain in my place and Davies and Kelly brought in, but that's me. If I want something I will work even harder to go and get it."
