Stoke boss Pulis not frightened of tough season run-in

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis isn't frightened of their tough season run-in.

Pulis believes the race to finish in the top four, plus the strength of the Chelsea and Tottenham squads, will not leave Stoke facing weakened line-ups.

"Their ultimate goal must be to re-qualify for the Champions League," he said, "and the best way to do that is to finish in the top four.

"Whatever teams they put out against us, they will be going for the three points.

"Just look at Chelsea against Man City the other day. They had (Saloman) Kalou and (Fernando) Torres on the pitch and the little matter of Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka on the bench.

"And if Tottenham go with (Rafael) van der Vaart and Jermain Defoe, that leaves Peter Crouch and (Roman) Pavlyuchenko in reserve."
