Pulis gives Etherington injury update

Published Add your comment

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis is refusing to rule Matthew Etherington out of the FA Cup final despite a scan revealing the winger has a hamstring tear.

The 29-year-old suffered the tear during his side's victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers last month.

And with time running out to be fit in time for the showcase final against Manchester City, Pulis is still unsure as to whether Etherington will be involved.

"Whether he's going to be fit, nobody can say," said Pulis.

"We'll know how much chance he's got in a week's time.


"He'll now be treated, and be looked after as best as we possibly can. We'll have a very good view of it in seven days."

Assistant boss Dave Kemp said: "The club will do everything they can to get him fit.

"It's not good news, but it all depends on how he treats it and if he can recover.

"He is disappointed, but as long as there is hope, there is a chance."
