Stoke chairman Peter Coates has backed the comments of Tony Pulis which have landed the Potters manager in trouble with the Football Association.

Pulis has been charged with improper conduct by the FA following his criticism of referee Lee Probert after last month's 2-1 Carling Cup defeat to Liverpool at the Britannia Stadium. The Welshman questioned Probert's decision to disallow a Jon Walters effort and felt there had been a foul on Peter Crouch which should have seen Stoke awarded a penalty.

"I am surprised and disappointed because Tony made legitimate points about poor decisions," said Coates, quoted in The Sentinel.
