Stoke City boss makes Angus Gunn admission as he explains goalkeeping change



Michael O’Neill conceded Angus Gunn wasn’t at his best in Tuesday’s defeat to Coventry City as he explained his decision to drop Adam Davies.

Stoke City’s limp end to the season continued as they were beaten 3-2 at home, a win which propelled the Sky Blues to the brink of Championship safety.

Before the game, O’Neill made four changes to the side which drew 0-0 with Preston North End at the weekend.

One of those changes saw Gunn replace Davies in goal.

With both keepers having spent time out injured this season, O’Neill says it is important for me to assess the pair before the end of a campaign which looks destined to end in mid-table.

“The two goalkeepers have both had bad injuries this season which kept them out for months,” said the Potters boss.

“We want to give them both game time as much as possible between now and the end of the season.

“Adam was excellent in the game on Saturday. I don’t think Angus was at his best [against Coventry].

“Between now and the end of the season, we’ve got to look at the goalkeeping situation, as we do at all areas of the pitch.”
