Shawcross not afraid of Crouch
Stoke centre back Ryan Shawcross is relishing the opportunity of coming up against Spurs striker Peter Crouch in tomorrow`s clash at White Hart Lane.
Crouch, at 6"7, will once again be the tallest player on the pitch this weekend but the 6"5 Shawcross isnt too far behind.
While talking to BBC Radio Stoke he said "We dealt with him quite well when he played against us for Portsmouth"
'You don't want to get into an aerial battle with him. People are surprised with how good he is with his feet, but I'm sure we can deal with him.'
The battle between 3rd place Tottenham and 9th placed Stoke will see the Potters try to win at there opponents for the first time in 34 years. C`mon Stoke!
