The Potters have been quiet in the January transfer window so far, with Pulis yet to make any additions to his squad.

He hopes that situation will change before deadline day, with it important to strengthen when the opportunity arises.

"We are looking to bring one or two others in if we possibly can," Pulis told Sky Sports News HD.

"I think we need to freshen it up. We are certainly weak in one or two areas.

"We are trying but it has to be right for the football club, as always."

Pulis is also looking to retain the services of those already on his books, with speculation linking Kenwyne Jones with a switch to Swansea beginning to get on his nerves.

Pressed on whether there had been any movement on that front, Pulis said: "Watch us training and see if Kenwyne is there, and then take a view of it from there."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
