STOKE CITY boss Tony Pulis is hop­ing that Ire­land star Glenn Whe­lan will not miss the start of the Premier League sea­son due to sus­pen­sion.

He was sent off dur­ing the club’s pre-sea­son USA tour.

Whe­lan was shown a sec­ond yel­low card against Or­lando City for a clash with for­mer Stoke player James O’Con­nor.

“It was a friendly away from the UK , so I’m hop­ing the red card doesn’t af­fect us,” said Pulis.
