Jermaine Pennant admits he's surprised by Stoke City's form this season.

Pennant joined the Potters last summer from Real Zaragoza in a £2million deal after an initial loan move.

The ex Arsenal and Liverpool player now finds himself in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley against Bolton next month.

He said: "Coming back to England and the Premier League, I never even dreamed I'd be playing at Wembley.

"I've never played there before and it was never in my thinking when I signed here.

"We've got eight League games left and we've got to keep our focus. We can't let Wembley distract us."
