It`s ten days until the cup replay against Stoke, but already the Potters are fired up for giving Sam another headache he doesn`t need. Having seen us get dumped out 5-1 by a team the league below at SJP last year Tony Pulis believes that they shouldn`t show us any respect:
“We were a little tepid in the first half and gave them too much respect. We were better in the second half and created a lot of chances. I couldn’t believe Jon Parkin’s chance didn’t go in, you would expect him to score. It will be a difficult replay but the players will really relish it.’
