Woodgate points to Stoke strength

Published Add your comment

Defender Jonathan Woodgate believes Stoke have two huge factors in their favour - a strong team spirit and a ground nobody likes visiting.

The Potters climbed to eighth in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday as they held off Tottenham at the Britannia Stadium for a hard-fought - although highly controversial - third successive victory.

Coming amid a run of games that has also seen Tony Pulis' men qualify for the knockout stage of the Europa League, confidence has been restored after a tricky autumn spell, and Woodgate said: "It was a great win against a top team in Tottenham. They are going for the league title but it is hard to come to Stoke and get three points."
