The win over Hull City on Saturday was overshadowed by the horrific injury sustained by Stoke City midfielder Stephen Ireland who required 10 stitches in an open wound which left manager Mark Hughes fuming at another poor refereeing performance.
Ireland was the unfortunate recipient of a Maynor Figueroa tackle from behind which went unpunished by the referee and was missed by the assistant who was within 10 yards of the incident. Hughes will be speaking to the FA and seeking retrospective action following the challenge which he described as career threatening. The injury is likely to keep Ireland sidelined for at least a month and is the latest in a long line of problems this term which include muscular, knee and chest injuries. Fortunately for Stoke their midfield quota is relatively well-stocked at the moment with Steve Sidwell, Charlie Adam, Geoff Cameron and Marko Arnautovic all potential replacements. Mar 1 - 6:07 AM
