Stoke boss Tony Pulis insists the club will reserve judgment on Jermaine Pennant's latest alleged indiscretions until after next week's court case.

The 29-year-old winger, who has a history of off-the-field problems, is due to appear at Trafford magistrates court on May 9 charged with drink-driving, driving while disqualified and having no insurance. Pennant was also arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in a nightclub on the same night, but Pulis is keen to give his player the benefit of the doubt.

The Potters manager said: "He's got his court case on May 9 and let's see what comes out. It's very important that as a football club we wait until we see the facts because we all know what the media can do and how they can influence certain things."
