JOHN GUIDETTI says he has no qualms over Mark Hughes’ decision to replace him late in the second half, just 16 minutes after being thrust into action from the bench.

The young Swedish international impressed in his short outing and in fact earned his side the penalty which ultimately ensured a fully deserved point from the game at Carrow Road.

Mark Hughes was however forced into a late re-shuffle following Jonathan Walters’ harsh dismissal, with the on-loan Manchester City ace being the player surrendered by the Welshman.

“I just do what I have to do for the good of the team and at that time, with Jon just being sent off, the manager thought it was best to make the change,” he told stokecityfc.com.

“I’m not going to argue with that because in the end we got the point that we fully deserved from the game.

“It was important to get something from the game today, so to have helped win the penalty which earned us the point is very satisfying for me.”

The forward felt the Potters were the dominant side throughout the game and was left slightly disappointed not to have seen City claim all three points.

“I thought we were by far the better team over the course of the first 45 minutes, so of course it was disappointing not to have had that advantage at the break,” he added.

“We passed the ball well, created a lot of good opportunities, but just weren’t able to take them when they came our way.

“We showed good character at the end though to hold on to the point we had after the sending off, so that is another positive for us to take forward.”
