Tony Pulis makes no excuses for 'poor' Stoke

Stoke boss Tony Pulis says there is "no excuse" for his side's "desperately disappointing" 5-0 defeat by Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

Stoke have had to contend with a hectic fixture list this season due to their Europa League campaign, but Pulis insists this is not the reason for their "very poor" performance.

Pulis says his side "deserved nothing" from the game and were "second best" throughout the 90 minutes.
