Stoke City boss Tony Pulis says that he has no concerns over Ryan Shawcross losing a day of preparations for the Potters' weekend clash against Manchester United due to England duty.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has insisted that he has "no worries" regarding Ryan Shawcross's preparations for this weekend's Premier League action against Manchester United.

The defender, who is currently on international duty with England, was expected to fly home with his teammates today until last night's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Poland was postponed due to a drenched pitch at the National Stadium in Warsaw.

"You can't believe that if they have a roof and the rain is coming down they haven't prepared for it," Pulis told The Sentinel. "But you can't do anything about it now and I've got no worries about Ryan ahead of Saturday."

The World Cup qualifier has been rearranged for this afternoon at 4pm.
