Tony Pulis has indicated Stoke will appeal against Robert Huth's sending off in the 1-0 defeat to Sunderland - and suggested that play-acting by Black Cats midfielder David Meyler contributed to the German's dismissal.

Huth was shown a straight red card in the 45th minute at a wintry Britannia Stadium following his sliding challenge on Meyler.

Referee Martin Atkinson's decision to dismiss the defender left Pulis enraged and asked after the game if he planned to appeal, the Potters boss said: "We will see. I think we definitely will."
