Stoke manager Pulis wants continued fan support

The 54-year-old is hoping that his side have a change of luck as they looks for a first Premier League win of the season and believes the fans' support will be vital to a victory
Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes that his side need a change of luck and the continued support of the club’s fans to record their first victory of the season in the Premier League.

The Potters face Swansea on Saturday at the Britannia Stadium and need a victory after failing to win in their first five games in the league.

Stoke suffered their first defeat of the season at Chelsea on Saturday after drawing their first four matches against tough opposition.

The 54-year-old believes that the passionate supporters of the club can help the team to their first victory of the season.  

“We need a change of luck and we need our supporters to get behind us at the weekend,” Pulis told reporters.

“Swansea is now a big game for us, but every game at the Britannia Stadium is a big one.

“Whenever we have needed that little bit help from our fans in the past, they have never let us done, so we want to make sure we fill the stadium for this game.

“Although the performances have been good so far, we haven’t had that little bit of luck. But if we keep working hard, it will change for us.”
