Delap targets Europa upset

Published Add your comment

Rory Delap has assured the thousands of Stoke fans who have travelled out to Valencia that the side will give everything in a bid to reach the last 16 of the Europa League.

The headlines before tonight's second leg, in which the Potters are attempting to overturn a 1-0 deficit, centred on boss Tony Pulis' squad selection, with star names like Ryan Shawcross, Matthew Etherington, Peter Crouch and Jon Walters left behind.

An estimated 4,000 Stoke supporters have descended on Spain, and Delap said: "We're not coming here to roll over and go out of the competition. People are saying about the team we've brought over but there's not one of us who is going to turn up here and think the tie is over."
