Stoke manager Tony Pulis is hoping Jermaine Pennant has learned his lesson this week after "talking to a bunch of Herberts" on Twitter.

Following last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Wigan, Pennant used the social networking site to voice his frustration, in particular at playing at wing-back, and his comments were picked up by a newspaper and turned into criticism of Pulis.

Pennant has since tweeted that he was merely frustrated with the team's performance, but Pulis questioned his use of Twitter, saying: "He (Pennant) has most probably learned a lesson by doing it because you are just waiting for people to pick things up and then twist and turn it the way they want to."
