Shawcross says Stoke aiming to bounce back at Newcastle

Stoke City captain Ryan Shawcross says they hope to bounce back at Newcastle United.

Stoke City captain Ryan Shawcross says they hope to bounce back at Newcastle United.

Shawcross says City are still expecting a difficult game against a Newcastle side who will go level on points with 11th-placed Stoke with a win at St James' Park.

He said: "It will be a tough test. They have a European game on Thursday which could take its toll, so hopefully they will be a bit tired. But they have a lot of great players.

"We go there hoping for three points. It is a difficult place to go, but we have shown in the past we can go there and win."
