Stoke City boss Tony Pulis goes into their Europa League clash with Besiktas determined to win.

Pulis has confirmed he will play a strong team against Besiktas with Peter Crouch expected to start up front.

"I think if we can win the three games at home, we've got a great chance," said Pulis, "we have pinpointed this game. If we can win this, it's a great start to the competition for us."
