Pulis relieved to hold on to win

first_img After Stoke defender Robert Huth had opened the scoring with a 67th-minute header, a fierce strike from substitute Cameron Jerome with nine minutes of normal time remaining appeared to make three points safe for the hosts. But Adrian Mariappa nodded in two minutes later for the Royals, who had scored a host of important late goals in their recent unbeaten sequence of four league games. And Reading might have completed another dramatic comeback if referee Michael Oliver had not waved away Adam Le Fondre’s penalty appeals in the dying moments. Pulis added: “After the first half I thought we deserved to be coming in leading, but we just picked the pace up and the two subs (Jerome and Kenwyne Jones) made a great difference again. Cameron Jerome is a great impact player and he scored a great goal.” Regarding the Le Fondre incident – where the in-form striker went down in the box under the attentions of Ryan Shotton – Pulis said: “Firstly I was told it was a penalty, then I’ve just been told (you can see) it actually isn’t from a different angle – that the lad isn’t caught, but just arches his back and falls over. But if it was a penalty, I have to say thank goodness we have had a break, because we deserve one.” Reading boss Brian McDermott had no doubt what he thought about the penalty claim. “Once we got to 2-1, I thought we would get it (a draw), and unfortunately the ref has missed a penalty at the end, the last kick of the game,” McDermott said. “He got hold of the ball, flicked it by him and he caught him. It was a stonewall penalty. I’ve just gone in to see him (Oliver) and he didn’t see it that way, so that’s fine, but I thought it was. “Sometimes as a manager you get those things – with the last kick of the game, it would have been great to get the point. We hung in there and showed great resilience and desire. This is not an easy place to come to, which everyone knows.” The Potters, whose previous top-flight win had come on Boxing Day, beat Reading 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium having dominated much of the contest but been forced to endure a nervy finale. Reading remain 17th in the table, two points clear of the relegation zone, while Stoke stay 10th. After seeing his team hang on for the victory – unlike in their previous home outing, when they had squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Wigan – Pulis said: “It has been a long time. I thought we deserved to win the game – I would have been absolutely devastated if we hadn’t won the game today.” Stoke manager Tony Pulis would have been “absolutely devastated” if his side had been denied their first Barclays Premier League victory of 2013 on Saturday afternoon.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Lambert to hold Cleverley talks

first_imgAston Villa boss Paul Lambert has revealed he will hold talks with Tom Cleverley about his future. The Scot is also looking to keep skipper Ron Vlaar and midfielder Fabian Delph, who are both out of contract at the end of the season, next month. He does not expect to lose them and does not have a strict transfer budget for January and will work on a player-by-player basis with chairman Randy Lerner and chief executive Tom Fox. “That’s exactly the way it works, I don’t have a problem,” he said. “We have had one or two chats on the phone with Tom and Randy, if something comes up and Randy thinks it is feasible and affordable and right for the club then I am pretty sure he will have a look at it. “But we have to get into that position where we need a position filled.” Press Association Villa have an option to buy the Manchester United loanee in January but Cleverley’s contract at Old Trafford expires in June. Everton wanted to sign the England international in the summer but failed to agree a deal with United, allowing Villa to resurrect a deadline day move which looked to be over. The club have no deal in place for the midfielder in the summer and Lambert is planning to sit down with the 25-year-old. “I have the option to buy in January but I have got him for a season long loan anyway. I would definitely try but a lot will depend on finances,” said Lambert, who has Cleverley available for the Boxing Day trip to Swansea after suspension. “I will have a discussion with Tom and sit with him and see what he thinks. He is still a Manchester United player. “But the great thing about Tom Cleverley is he has been brilliant here. His enthusiasm for the game and the way he plays the game is great. “The way he is around the place is great. I am pretty sure he loves his football here. “He has been a credit to himself and Manchester United with the way he has conducted himself. “I think he has played really, really well, he has years ahead of him to play. “I am pretty sure he will not want to keep sitting around, knowing Tom Cleverley as I do in a short space of time he won’t want to sit on the bench.” last_img read more
