Fulham boss Mark Hughes wants to bury the hatchet with his Stoke City counterpart Tony Pulis

We need to grow up, says Cottagers' manager
Fulham manager Mark Hughes is hoping to bury the hatchet and shake hands with his Stoke City counterpart Tony Pulis, when the two sides meet at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

The former Wales boss began the stand-off by not shaking hands with Pulis after his side lost to the Potters in a League Cup game back in September. And the Stoke boss returned the favour when his charges were beaten by the Londoners.

Now Hughes hopes that the two men can "grow up" and let bygones be bygones.

"I probably got a little bit emotional and showed it in the wrong way and maybe Tony showed his displeasure at being beaten at home in the wrong way so we need to grow up a bit," Hughes was quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.

"It was blown out of proportion, it was tit for tat.

"Will he accept my handshake? I have no idea, I hope so. We are both Welsh lads, there is no reason why not but I haven't spoken to him since."
