Hughes shows faith in Pennant

Stoke boss Mark Hughes expects Jermaine Pennant to make the most of his second chance at the Britannia Stadium.

He's been given another opportunity here.

He loves the club, he didn't want to leave. He thought possibly he would have to but things change very quickly in football and he's got another chance.

I'm sure he'll take it because he's a good guy and he works hard. I think people sometimes get the wrong impression of Jermaine but he wants to play football and he wants to make an impression for us.
