Chelsea manager Avram Grant is not concerned about the state of the Rosenborg pitch as he bids to steer his side into the knockout stages of the Champions League o Wednesday night.

A win for the Blues in snowbound Trondheim will put Chelsea into the next stage but first they will have to overcome difficult playing conditions in Norway - the pitch was rock-hard for Chelsea´s training session on Tuesday after weekend snowfalls and dipping temperatures.

But the 52-year-old Israeli coach said: "I saw the pitch and it is not so good, but it is the same for both sides. We know we are playing against a very good team. The first game at Stamford Bridge was not so good for us - so we want to win."
