Stoke City fullback Andy Griffin and teammate Ricardo Fuller showed that morale is sky high at the Brit during this week's amazing Carling Cup triumph over Blackpool.

Griffin was seen tapping Ricardo Fuller on the head after the Jamaican netted Stoke's third - a playful reference to Fuller's infamous slap at Griffin's face at West Ham last December.

"With myself, that (incident) went almost straight away because I don't bear grudges - life is too short," said Griffin.
