Stoke City have 'another Rory Delap' on their books in young winger Ben Marshall.

Marshall's long throw has become a feature of Sheffield Wednesday's attacking armoury during his loan spell at Hillsborough.

“It gives us another dimension but I don’t want to be a team that just does that all the time,” Owls boss Gary Megson told the Yorkshire Post. “We don’t want to be launching it from long throws every time we get within 20 yards of goal.

“It will be much better if it can be done quickly, so the opposition are not ready to defend it.”
