Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry hailed their gutsy FA Cup win at Stoke City.

Barry hailed the win as another significant hurdle cleared in the champions' quest for further glory following their 2011 FA Cup triumph and last season's title success.

"It's obviously a fantastic win," said Barry. "I'm not too sure in my career that I've ever won here, so it's a fantastic result.

"To get rid of the hoodoo at Arsenal, winning there, and it's a while since we won at Stoke as well, so they're great victories."
