    Tony Pulis has never been relegated during his time as a manager, and that is a record that the Stoke City boss is determined to maintain. Stoke have picked up just five points from a possible 36 in 2013 and have dropped to 15th in the table. The Potters are now just three points outside the relegation zone with six games left to play and face Premier League leaders Manchester United live on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday.
    We have to keep working hard and believe. As a manager I'll keep fighting on. I have never been relegated as a manager but that's in the past. We have to look to the future and the important thing is getting the players' confidence together.

    Here's more on Phil Neville's decision to leave Everton at the end of the season. The defender insists he wants to continue his playing career elsewhere and said in a statement:
    It's been an honour to play for and captain Everton Football Club. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on Merseyside and will leave with immense pride. I would like to thank the manager, chairman, all of the staff and the players at Everton for their continued support during my time at the club. I'd also like to pay a special thanks to the fans, who have been amazing over the past eight years and Everton will always have a place in my heart. I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can, and will be weighing up my options before making a decision on my next move.

    Hopes remain high that Sprinter Sacre could have his final run of the season in the Champion Chase at Punchestown on April 23. Nicky Henderson's 'black aeroplane' took his unbeaten run over fences to nine at Aintree last week, with a breathtaking performance in the John Smith's Melling Chase and the trainer said:
    Sprinter Sacre could go for the Champion Chase at Punchestown on April 23. He still looks absolutely stunning in his coat. His work rider Nico de Boinville will tell me in a week if the horse is 100 per cent. If he is he will run, anything less and he won't.

    [ssn]Former Everton defender Andy Hinchcliffe has been on Sky Sports News talking about Phil Neville's decision to leave the club at the end of the season. Hinchcliffe believes the uncertainty surrounding manager David Moyes' future at Goodison Park could have had an influence on Neville's decision.
    Looking at the situation with David Moyes, there's a very uncertain summer ahead for Everton. Phil has maybe had a chat with David Moyes and is maybe not sure what the future holds for him and he can't sign a contract to stay at Everton if he doesn't know who the manager is. Maybe that had a role to play and I'm sure we'll find out in time. If the manager is possibly leaving, and the captain is leaving, the feeling is a strange one at Everton and it's going to be a difficult summer in terms of recruiting players for next season.

As for his chances of victory in this year's tournament, Watson said:
    I could miss the cut or I could win, you never know what's going to happen. I feel good, but if you look at the stats you would say that Bubba's not playing as good as last year.
