Big Jon Parkin is relishing the chance to lock horns with Chelsea captain John Terry.

Preston North End face Chelsea tomorrow in the FA Cup and Parkin has the bulk to back up his words - his 6ft 4in and 14 stone frame presenting Terry with an massive obstacle to his own cup dreams.

Parkin said: "I am looking forward to playing against John Terry. That would be a lovely experience for me.

"He is a world class centre-half and it would be nice to see how I can on against him. I like a battle against a player that has a physical style. I certainly won't be running away from him. If we can have a good battle it would be a good crack.

"I have never played against him before so it would be a great experience to see how I do."
