Stoke defender Jonathan Woodgate claims nobody likes coming to the Britannia Stadium following the Potters' controversial victory over Tottenham.

Tony Pulis' side triumphed 2-1 on Sunday, although Spurs felt seriously aggrieved by a number of refereeing decisions that appeared to go against them.

Stoke, though, for their part, were typically resilient and provided the Spurs defence with a stern examination for the majority of the afternoon.

The Potters' defence also remained resolute, thanks in part to the commanding presence of Woodgate, who was released by Spurs in the summer.

And the 31-year-old was thrilled to come out on top against his old club who, he says, will have hated their experience at the Britannia, just like every other side.

"It was a great win against a top team in Tottenham," Woodgate said, according to

"They are going for the league title but it is hard to come to Stoke and get three points. We are 11 men - a strong team.

"Nobody likes coming to Stoke. The referee doesn't like coming, the journalists don't like coming, the police don't like coming. Nobody likes coming to Stoke, apart from us.

"We are a match for anyone at home. We don't make it easy for teams and long may that continue."
