Ferguson ready for Stoke challenge

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson is relishing the prospect of his Manchester United side facing the unique challenge presented by Stoke at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Following Saturday's FA Cup defeat to Liverpool, an encounter with Tony Pulis' battlers would not normally be viewed as the ideal method of recovery. However, a draw at the Britannia Stadium in September represented the first points dropped to the Potteries outfit since they were promoted to the Premier League in 2008.

"You know what Tony Pulis's team will be like, they are the same all the time," Ferguson said. "They will be 100% committed and they always get stuck in. You have to cope with that."
