Stoke manager Tony Pulis cannot quite believe the run of bad decisions which have gone against his side this season.

The Potters boss said he is enduring the worst run of refereeing errors in his managerial career and is desperate for his team's luck to change.

"I don't think they are excuses, they are facts," said the Stoke manager.

"We have played 10 games and had five major decisions go against us - it is the worst run I have ever had.

"We haven't had the rub of the green and sometimes you need decisions to go for you.

"They have been game-changing decisions, they have not been minimal decisions and it is disappointing because I don't think the decisions have been difficult ones to give.

"You know referees will make mistakes like players make mistakes, but what you hope for is that those mistakes are not game-changing.

"I don't think any referees go out with any pre-conceived ideas in what they are going to do or not going to do but we have been on the wrong end of it and I hope it changes sooner rather than later."
