Pulis: 'If they're good enough, they'll play'

Pulis said: "The bottom line is simple as far as I'm concerned. If they are good enough they will get in the team, if they aren't then they won't. That goes for any player.

"I'm hoping they are better than what we've already got here, but obviously they have to prove that."

"Milan (Chairman of ex-club Portsmouth) [when he signed players] always knew if they weren't better than the players we already had at that time they wouldn't play. And they didn't.

"It's the same here. I will always pick what I think are the best players for the team for a particular game.

"Although I will speak to Dave Kemp and Lindsay Parsons, ultimate responsibility always lies with me when it comes to selection."
