Wilson happy to fight for Stoke start

Marc Wilson is happy to fight for his place at Stoke City.

Wilson joined on the same day as former Barcelona and Chelsea forward Eidur Gudjohnsen and ex-Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant as Pulis bolstered his squad.

But the competition for places does not worry the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international.

"Obviously Eidur and Jermaine are top players and it was a good feeling to be joining the club on the same day," he told The Sentinel.

"But there are a number of very good players here already.

"There has already been a bit of banter thrown around and it seems to be a lively dressing room.

"Hopefully I can make my debut against Aston Villa (on September 13) and build a good rapport with them straight away.

"But if I'm not selected, I'll bide my time until I get my chance."
