Nagoya coach Stojkovic cautious of physical Newcastle outfit

Nagoya Grampus coach Dragan Stojkovic says he is wary of a physical Newcastle Jets ahead of the Group E clash in the Asian Champions League.

When the two sides met a fortnight ago, Stojkovic said his opponents were very physical and deserved a positive result.

This time he will be extremely cautious of the A-League club.

"We knew that it would be a very hard game and Newcastle Jets deserved a positive result in the first leg. How they play and what they showed they deserved a minimum of a draw," he said yesterday.

"If we want to make a good result tomorrow we have to spend a lot of energy. We must be careful about the long ball and physical presence of the Newcastle players."
