Pulis sets sights on Cup win

Pulis’ side were in luck on Sunday as their opponents were completely out of form, giving Stoke a straightforward victory.

And Pulis, who was manager of the Gillingham side who gave away a 2-0 lead against Manchester City in a play off final a decade ago in injury time, admits revenge for that defeat will spur him on.

“We didn’t deserve to lose that game and I had never been back to Wembley for a game since because of it.”
