Pulis unfazed by Stoke City's relegation scrap

The Potters are three points above the drop zone and face a trip to likely relegation sufferers QPR on Saturday
Stoke City manager Tony Pulis insists he is unfazed by the club's relegation run-in this season.

Pulis' men sit just three points above the drop zone, however 18th-placed Wigan have played one games less than all of their relegation rivals.

Stoke have won just one away match in the Premier League all season and face a trip to QPR this Saturday, with Harry Redknapp's side 10 points adrift of safety.

"If it means going right to the wire, it will go to the wire. It won't be the first time I have had to go there to get the job done," Pulis told reporters.

"The first year, keeping the club up in the last game of the season against Reading was an enormous feat and an achievement that is underestimated by people. If we hadn't stayed up I'm not sure what position the club would have been in now.

"That was when the club was really on its knees and that was a massive game. But we are playing for bigger stakes now and we are desperately keen to stay in the Premier League."
